Autumn (by G. Rodari)
The hay is mown
the hunter shot,
autumn is inaugurated:
The cricket has bricked up
in the grave in the middle of the meadow.
Yellow Leaves (by Trilussa)
But where are you going,
poor yellow leaves,
like so many butterflies
Come from afar
or up close?
From a wood
or from a garden?
And don’t feel melancholy
of the wind itself
who takes you away?
Autumn (by G. Gasparini)
Red leaves, yellow leaves,
fly away like butterflies:
the sapling remains naked,
naked, bare and poor.
– But spring will come! –
the little bird comforts him
who came close to him.
– Flowers and nests you will get back,
and in joy you will sing,
and I will sing with you too
praise and thanks to the good Lord.
The autumn (by A. Russo)
The earth gets dressed
of the yellow of the leaves
picks up the whispers
of the anxious birds
with withered branches
pointing to the sky.
I saw dancing
on the sea
many pieces of the moon.
Autumn motif (by P. Javorov)
The north wind blows over the fields;
the trees shakes.
and from withered branches
detaches the dead leaves.
The wind spreads them,
far across the fields:
only the black stems remain
that sad shake the bare branches.
