„The long sobs of
The violins
Of autumn
Lay waste my heart
With monotones
Of boredom.“

—  Paul Verlaine, "Chanson d'automne", line 1, from Poèmes saturniens (1866); Sorrell p. 24

„There is at least a punky spark in my heart and it may blaze in this autumn gold, fanned by the King. Some of my grandfathers must have been born on a muirland for there is heather in me, and tinctures of bog juices, that send me to Cassiope, and oozing through all my veins impel me unhaltingly through endless glacier meadows, seemingly the deeper and danker the better.“

To find the Orient's marvels here;
The still small voice in autumn's hush,
Yon maple wood the burning bush.“
