This vertical image features English text from "Yellow Spring (Primavera amarilla)" by Juan Ramón Jiménez. The poem is written on squares of orange and yellow hues.
Inscribed: Yellow Spring / April came, full / Of yellow flowers, / The brook was yellow / The stone walls were yellow, the hill, / The children's graveyard, / And the orchard where love was living. / The sun anointed the world with yellow / With down pouring rays. / Ah through the golden Lillies, / The warm golden water, / The yellow butterflies / Over the golden roses. / April came, full / Of yellow flowers / The brook was yellow / The stone walls were yellow, the hill / The children's graveyard, / And the orchard where love was / living / Yellow garlands were climbing / Up the trees, the day / Was a grace perfumed with gold / In a golden awakening of life / Among the bones of the dead, / God opened his yellow hands. Jimenez
