It is time, Lord, let the grand summer pass. Lay your shadow to lengthen on the sundials and in the pastures accord the winds.
As for the final fruits, coax them to roundness. Grant them a few more southern hours, to hale them golden toward their term, and harry the last drops of sweetness through the wine.
Whoever is homeless now, will build no shelter; He who lives alone will henceforth remain so, waking up to read a little, draft long letters, and, along the city streets wander, restless as the wild leaves loosen.
–Rainer Maria Rilke / Autumn Day
