In a green place lanced through
With amber and gold and blue - -
A place of water and weeds,
and roses pinker than dawn
And ranks of lush young reeds
And grasses straightly withdrawn
From graven ripples of sands.
The still blue heron stands.

  A dawn wind stirs on the great marsh. With almost imperceptible slowness, it
  rolls a bank of fog across the wild morass. Like the white ghost of a glacier, the
  mists advance, riding over phalanxes of tamarack, sliding across bog meadows
  heavy with dew. A single silence hangs from horizon to horizon.
