Surely Silver...





Summer cannot last forever
Though sometimes we wish it could
Just like wisdom surely silver
Crowns the brow like snow on wood

Pleasant is the purple river
Purled of clover-cloven plume
But like wisdom surely silver
Is the climax of the bloom

Green is mercy’s gift to nature
Youth and summer coalesce
But like wisdom surely silver
Keens its kiss in fledgling tress

Time pours petals from its quiver
Myriad of colors fall
But like wisdom surely silver
Is the fairest of them all
