I WISH VERMEER WERE HERE

Ocher and umber

Moving in de wind

57 flavors of red and

Green rescind

I wish Vermeer were here

To paint the scene

Riding in my 1960 Fleetwood limousine

Doing the  Brougham lean

Feeling the rushes

And the thrushes

Discerning a new shade of green

There is a willow waving its greeting

It is greening

And preening

The willow knows Vermeer is looking

Write through it

At the blue it

Can not stop

The carbon dioxide that screws it

Up and down The over and under

The ocher and burnt umber

The enchanted fall is so true

It is the best of the year

I wish Vermeer were here
