• The vineyard country, russet, reddish, carmine-brown in this season.
    A blue outline of hills above a fertile valley.
    It's warm as long as the sun does not set, in the shade cold returns.
    A strong sauna and then swimming in a pool surrounded by trees.
    Dark redwoods, transparent pale-leved birches.
    In their delicate network, a sliver of the moon.
    I describe this for I have learned to doubt philosophy
    And the visible world is all that remains.
