A famous resident sums it up..."The name - of it - is 'Autumn' -⁣
The hue - of it - is Blood -⁣
An Artery - opon the Hill -⁣
A Vein - along the Road -⁣

Great Globules - in the Alleys -⁣
And Oh, the Shower of Stain -⁣
When Winds - upset the Basin -⁣
And spill the Scarlet Rain -⁣

It sprinkles Bonnets - far below -⁣
It gathers ruddy Pools -⁣
Then - eddies like a Rose - away -⁣
Opon Vermillion Wheels -"⁣

(Fr465A - "The name of it is 'autumn'")
