A poet of Toke wrote a peom

It is getting chilly in the evening these days.
Feeling that autumn has already come....
This town has a lot of greens, and the air is fresh.
By playing bball outside, I can feel the change in environment.
When I see the sun is setting, I feel lonely that
time is passing rapidly.
