Autumn rides back a gold-red, sober queen. Fall that we know so well, yet so endlessly new! We talk and walk under a temperate sun, Wishing for short silence; absence of fear, If only for a time; a cooling of the hot blood Of violence, wanting authority only to leave us in peace To stroll and chat under the leaf-thinned trees, Happy are children playing outside time's shutters - And mindless, too, of our blood-red hands.
