The autumn dawns 
where the summer 
sets, and beyond its 
boarders the cold chill
lies in wait.  

And whence 
the former engaged 
with the fall, the descent 
was calmly rapid. 

The newborn sun 
was not sufficient
to warm the day 
enough to fight the 
coming expiration, 
and when it set, 
an omen claimed 
the air. 

So foretold 
were the coming 
days' fate, growing 
shorter and shorter, 
till there was no longer 
light enough to 
guide them through 
the bitter darkness.
