some autumn things

Still waiting on developing a roll of film I've had going since August, so I don't have much in the way of fall photographs... but I think autumn deserves just about as much recognition as we can give it for all its beauty. Praise God for such beautiful days, and for the way He holds us close through them all.

Lord: it is time. The huge summer has gone by.
Now overlap the sundials with your shadows,
and on the meadows let the wind go free.  

Command the fruits to swell on tree and vine;
grant them a few more warm transparent days,
urge them on to fulfillment then, and press
the final sweetness into the heavy wine.  

Whoever has no house now, will never have one.
Whoever is alone will stay alone,
will sit, read, write long letters through the evening,
and wander along the boulevards, up and down,
restlessly, while the dry leaves are blowing.
