We stand

by the strand

of highway



and Telluride

on a gleaming

day between

heat and chill

looking out

on pastures

green still

and peaks

touched with

snow. A hired

rancher’s tractor

pulls a contraption

that gathers

cut grasses into

rangy rolls.

All the sweet

summer is soon

stored away

to feed winter

stock as surely

as stock earned

in other ways

has been

gathered to hire

a rancher.
