One does not need to possess the eloquence of a poet, but it would come in handy in order to express oneself as Rainer Maria Rilke did in his famous poem "Autumn Day" (1902): "Lord, it is time. Let the summer go. / Lay your long shadows on the sundials, / And over harvest piles let winds blow". The comparison between the cycle of the changing seasons and the birth and demise of human life springs to mind. Autumn is the interconnecting period between the extremes of summer and winter. It is a special time. And one of great beauty.
