Substitutes

The smell of violets near a glass of wine,
The sweet of citrus in a clementine,
A summer shadow from a leaning pine,
With sap and pollen round its roots —

The sound of waters from a distant stream,
The feel of sunshine, in a single beam,
The first star coming, with its growing gleam —
What are these, but

Substitutes?
