“Red leaf, gold leaf,
Flutter down the wind:
Life is brief, oh! life is brief,
But Mother Earth is kind;
From her dear bosom ye shall spring
To new blossoming.”
(E.M. Hutchinson in Autumn song)
“I’ve got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It’s got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good.
I’d give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.”
(Syd Barrett in Bike)
