Heavy foggy mist in the air. A sun-spoked morning. Sky dappled with pithy flakes. / Mist whitened trees in distaste ray-streaked. English sparrows fluttering along the road as tho (sic) windblown are transparently winged. / A Tulip-tree is studded with bright yellow stars. Yellow-studded tulip tree. Yellow-starred tulip. The other leaves are fresh & green. / Noticing how a noble row of poplars was becoming yellow-leaved, I thought they were changing for autumn. Twinkling yellow against the sky. The morning breeze sent a wave of yellow twinkles against the dappled sun-barred east.
