  Reprinted in Hong Kong House.  

A series of triplets in which the speaker is the autumn itself. The reference in the subtitle to the ballet dancer Gojô is the only direct connection to a Japanese subject. According to Kirkpatrick (187) the work appeared later in a ballet programme and in a journal in Hong Kong under the heading ‘Patterns for a Japanese Ballet’. A companion piece, also dedicated to Gojô, is 112. Reprinted in 144.
