This morning gold was on the wall,
not the tulip tree's leaves or shadow,
but silhouettes of the brightest space
through which the sun was shining!
Four lines by another author,
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafs a flower;
But only so an hour.
Welcome to Four Lines! I have a goal I would like to write at least four lines of poetry or a haiku every day for the rest of my life. I'm excited about this challenge! Also, along with my daily poem, I will be reading at least four lines of another author's poetry. I'll try to include that here also. So I'm thinking - how difficult can it be to read and then write one poem a day? We will see! - Claudia
