Symphony in yellow

Language: English

An omnibus across the bridge
Crawls like a yellow butterfly,
And, here and there, a passer-by
Shows like a restless little midge.

Big barges full of yellow hay,
Are moved against the shadowy wharf,
And like a yellow silken scarf,
The thick fog hangs along the quay.

The yellow leaves begin to fade,
And flutter from the temple elms,
And at my feet the pale green Thames
Lies like a rod of rippled jade.


First published in Centennial Magazine, 1889
