Columns Rearing Tall and Grey

Woods Along the Feather River, Live Oak, CA

Columns rearing tall and gray
To a green glass roof,
Through which is streaming,
On soft brown grass,
The light of day:
A refuge and a placed for dreaming
In woods so near, yet far away.

Spring 1968: This is my first serious poem, written for Mrs. Engstrom's English 11X, American Literature and Composition (when I was 16).
