< Vine >

<New Herbs: PartU>   P594-02
It was late in the Tenth Month. The vines on the shrine fence were red and there were red leaves beneath the pine trees as well, so that the services of the wind were not needed to tell of the advent of autumn.

<Trefoil Knots>   P854-18
"The vine yet clings to the stone-walled mountain village,
Longer-lived than he whom once I knew."
