Dear, Mr. Autumn.

Summer in Tokyo this year was unusually long. The record-breaking heat spell went on and on, until we residents started to think that we were now officially in the subtropical zone, the high temperature prevailing and becoming a permanent reality of our lives in the capital.

Then, the persistent heat suddenly disappeared. A few days of rain bought a chill which made us think that the winter has arrived without the mellow and yellow autumn in-between.

Damn that! I do love autumn. I love the deep blue sky over the sober tree. I love to watch a persimmon tree bearing red fruits all over the place. I miss the cool breeze that make the leaves rustle. It is too hard to go straight into the cold winter, without the soothing effect of a gorgeous autumn.

Dear, Mr. Autumn, please don't go away without giving us a chance to come back to our sincere selves after the carefree summer.

Please, please give us a fair share of autumn. Someone responsible up there, please!

Thanks to high temparatures only recently, we actually fail to catch autumn. It is the very headlong " fall ".

It seems that new rice and autumn fruits like pears and chestnuts have a poor crop for the persistence of dry weather.

I had a regular physical examination yesterday. I've gained two kilos for excessive cold drinks in this summer ! Boo !

These days,I can't afford to buy books(because of money),to draw pictures,to play baseball,tennis,soccer and so on(both because of time).

My uplifted mind has fallen down.
(Double autumn joke)

Does it make any sense to carry out entrance examinations?

You are busy, but don't worry about it please. I certainly heard the sound of the cool breeze the other day.

However, come to think of it, I haven't eaten a persimmon yet.

Hello! Mr. Shiki Masaoka near the Horyu-ji Temple! Can you hear my voice? Good. Would you mind if I took one?
