Dear all,

  While reading the last works (Music Late at Night, Poems 1970-73) of the
greatest Australian poet, I came across the following, which I thought a
few people might enjoy:

Late-ripening dark-red apples drop
Out of the tawny-yellow trees.
The sunless day is damp and still.
Wet cobwebs in the trampled grass;
We tread the ferment at our feet.
The bins of autumn slowly fill.

Softly spacious hours pass:
Nothing settles, they entreat
Acceptance of a grateful fall.
A wattlebird with a gulping clop
Loudly says it disagrees;
No one heeds its noisy call.

        - The Orchard, James Mcauley
