Rebecca Lowry / A Prairie Sunset – a poem by Walt Whitman (1888) written w/ wire brads on wood panel

A Prairie Sunset

Shot gold, maroon and violet, dazzling silver,
emerald, fawn.
The earth’s whole amplitude and Nature’s
multiform power  consign’d for one to
colors;
The light, the general air possess’d by them –
colors til now unknown.
No limit, confine – not the Western sky alone –
the high meridian – North, South, all.
Pure luminous color fighting the silent
shadows to the last.

Walt Whitman (1888)
