RED clouds and reddest flowers, And now two redder wings Swim through the rosy hours— Red wings among the flowers— And now the red-bird sings.Madison Cawein [1865-1914]
God gives the red clouds ripples Of flame that seem to split In rubies and in dripples Of rose where rills and ripples The singing flame that lit.
Red clouds of sundered splendor; God whispered one small word, Rich, rare, and sweet and tender . . . . Straight in the vibrant splendor The word became a bird.
He flies beneath the garnet Of clouds that flame and float,— When summer hears the hornet Hum round the plum turned garnet,— Heaven’s music in his throat.
