Vincent in Arles

Under the scorching sun
           in Arles Vincent painted
fields of ripe wheat
           before the harvest

Wheat he discovered
           is the very same colour
as the sunlight
            whence it comes
confirming
           that the sun is
a deep-hued
           cadmium yellow
