Tears, idle tears, 
I know not what they mean, 
Tears from the depth of some divine despair, 
Rise in the heart and gather in the eyes, 
In looking on the happy autumn fields, 
And thinking of the days that are no more. 
- Alfred, Lord Tennyson

In autumn, and a lustre in its sky,

Not wisdom. Can all men, together, avenge 
One of the leaves that have fallen in autumn? 
But the wise man avenges by building his city in snow.
