Painted facades in racing stripes once a summer rouge,
Now travelers and landscape sport a mustard yellow hue.
Street lines etch golden filigree in the diamond asphalt.
Dividing traffic’s to and fro with its citrine watermark.
Triathlon charioteers sporting yellow swoosh joggers
Jockey uphill, corn-yellow bikes in herculean fervor.
Spectator trees hold aloft their winged plumage
Of ripening branches in agate yellow,
Awaiting their yearly pilgrimage,
To offer their golden leaves as
Gilding to the ground below.
