October—Early Morning—Hampton Court Grounds

Misty Meadow, silvered silence,
small glass globes that shine;
dew diamonds that condense
from ground clouds—crystalline.

Grass in sparkling stillness
with shimmering cabochons;
blades in glittering costumes
with liquid gems—on the lawn.

All is glazed and serene,
a placid inland sea
reflecting with a gleam
a place of tranquility.
