Sunday morning, 2nd November 2014, Autumn Equinox

Wonderful downpour of leaf: when the morning sun began to melt the frost they fell at one touch and in a few minutes a whole tree was flung of them; they lay masking and papering the ground at the foot. Then the tree seems to be looking down on its cast self as blue sky on snow after a long fall, its losing, its doing. 

Gerald Manley Hopkins, 1873
