AUTUMN

“Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,

Before we too into dust descend;

Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to lie,

Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and–sans End!”

–Omar Khayyam

This is a Lorquin’s Admiral at the end of its short season here in Ashland. Tattered, battered, but still in action. It’s now October 13.  The night-time temps here at 2000′ are falling below 40-degrees.  You and I know what must come next, though Lorquin pays it no heed.
