The Fall Season Is Upon Us

Autumn, the present season

Changes of cadences and colors

It's a very charming time

Which only lies in errors.


The leaves are no longer green

Except those of the everlasting firs

A large number of sentinel birds

Leave, because they are less alert.


Autumn is a beautiful and dark season

Which is between the cool and the cold

It's time to decorate the homes

For the feasts of the believers, and for the loas.


Autumn is here; the leaves are falling

On the damp lawns and on the graves

Winter will be more severe this year

And the buds will be absent on the glaciers.


Autumn is picturesque and melancholic

The ladies start to hide their bodies

Bit by bit. The smiles become dramatic

As we celebrate the living and the dead.
