autumn

July 21, 2008

“Weary as I am

Of this world,

When autumn comes

And the moon shines serene,

I feel I should like to survive.”

“Wearied of this world

Why should I be?

Those once despised by me

Today my delight turn out to be.”

Japanese poem

Ways of Thinking of Eastern Peoples p. 372
