  4. \ grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head?\
  5. \ The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The\
  6. \ snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human\

  10. breaks. Such are the autumn people. Beware of them."
