About Artist:

“You will want to learn this by heart,” our German teacher said, while handing out copies of Herbsttag.  She was right.  Rilke’s musical, elegiac poem comes to mind every autumn.  Sometimes, walking alone in the woods, I find myself reciting it aloud.  Like most great poems, Herbsttag resists a satisfying translation.  Here is the matter without the music:

Fall Day                           Rainer Maria Rilke

Lord, it is time.  Summer has been grand.                          Lay your shadows now across the sundials;                          let your winds flow free upon the fields.

Tell the tardy grapes to ripen.                                                  Give them just a few more southern days.                            Urge them to perfection then, and chase                              their sweetness into weighty wine.

Who has no house now, will never build.                            Who is now alone, will long remain so;                                will lie awake and read and write long letters,                      and wander to and fro on tree-lined streets,                        restless, as the leaves come floating down. 

About Artwork:

Fall Day differs from my previous diptychs.  Again the left side records a memorable moment; the right side, a response to it.  Here, however, both what I saw and what I felt were shaped by the imagery and moods of Rilke’s poem.
