The sky looked almost white,
the sun a washed-out lemony pallor,
a moody autumn elegy all around,
were it not for the leaves still on the trees
that refused to tone down their golden splendor
When was the last time
you picked one of those berries
and let it pop?
for Klimt's paintbox
in Hietzing, Vienna's 13th District,
a short walk from where Gustav Klimt
had his studio the last six years of his life.
