One of my editors in his pedantry,
told me pine needles can't be pink.

Have you seen a forest of pine
shadow a carpet of yellow 'down'?

Have you walked this forest of yours
just one step ahead of dawn?

As pink as carpets of silk can be
woven by some sun god in Astrakhan.

The pine cones are darker highlights
in divine design (not from Connelly's
on a discount).

Come away from your outlet malls,
nature calls.
