The Four Seasons, Autumn, Allegro
Here's today's Kids Commute:
...and here's the text to the poem Vivaldi wrote as the, "story," to our music:
The hunters emerge at dawn,
ready for the chase,
with horns and dogs and cries.
Their quarry flees while they give chase.
Terrified and wounded, the prey struggles on,
but, harried, dies.
