Autumn music

In late October at a country place,
A man and maid stand silent, hand in hand,
Marvelling at the falling maple leaves,
As bursts of beauty meld into music
Keyed in a minor, melancholy mode,
Silken notes caressed on a clavichord;
The lasting memories in faded ink,
Inscribed in a dead girl's diary
