Autumn Day

    October 1, 2019

    Lord, the time has come. Summer was abundant.

    Cast your shadows over the sundial,

    across the fields unleash your winds.

     

    Command the final fruits to ripen.

    Grant them two more southern days,

    bring them to fullness and press

    their last sweetness into the heavy wine.

     

    Who  now has no house will not build one.

    Who now is alone will remain alone,

    will read into the night, write long letters,

    and, restless, wander streets

    where leaves are blowing.

     

    -Rilke, Book of Images
