The first sorrow of autumn Is the slow goodbye Of the garden who stands so long in the evening- A brown poppy head, The stalk of a lily, And still cannot go. The second sorrow Is the empty feet Of a pheasant who hangs from a hook with his brothers. The woodland of gold Is folded in feathers With its head in a bag. And the third sorrow Is the slow goodbye Of the sun who has gathered the birds and who gathers The minutes of evening, The golden and holy Ground of the picture. The fourth sorrow Is the pond gone black Ruined and sunken the city of water- The beetle's palace, The catacombs Of the dragonfly.

I like unironic thrillers and mediocre Agatha Christie imitations.
