but again autumn seems to hesitate to visit at a gallop.
But I leave something to be desired.
I remembered about the field I happened to see through the train window when I went to Kyoto the other day.
Perhaps it reminded me of my childhood, though the area was new to me.
When I was a schoolgirl I walked to and from school seeing such fields.
おのれ孤りおのれの毒を食みて生き女いささか酔ふことありし 斉藤 史
Living on her own,
staying alive by feeding
on her own poison,
a woman at times displayed
some slightly toxic symptoms
translated by James Kirkup $ Makoto Tamaki
Cluster amaryllis has another name, Spider lily.Remembering the crimson I saw in daytime, I thought of another aspect of life of the bright flower.
