  • Mine eyes are filled today with old amaze

    At mountains, and at meadows deftly strewn

    With bits of the gay jewelry of June

    And of her splendid vesture; and, agaze,

    I stand where Spring her bright brocade of days

    Embroidered o'er, and listen to the flow

    Of sudden runlets -- the faint blasts they blow,

    Low, on their stony bugles, in still ways.

    - Mahlon Leonard Fisher, 'Old Amaze'.
