Springtime in California


I had never seen such a yellow,

Even out of the metal tube, from my first oil paints,

when I saw yellow for the most vivid time.

Until now.


For nothing can express the kiss of yellow,

Breathed lightly in the hills,

On a Southern California slope.


This color has only one source.
