A battle of four months lasting

has finally been won

Only scorched earth greets at fasting

under the new Autumn sun

 

Days and days of 100 plus

trapped inside by a ball of fire

The new Autumn wind does not muss

dusty dirt or dirty dust in its empire

 

A newly set record of temperature

yet not a contest with a prize

Time for Autumn clothes -- haute couture

Slumbering, a sleeping giant lies

 

Now, leaves flutter undiscliplined

orange, yellow, red

Pumpkin's the smell of the Autumn wind

the world has come back from the dead
