Autumn verses in the spring

En la tarde lluviosa
mi corazón aprende
la tragedia otoñal
que los árboles llueven.

...

In the rain-swept afternoon
my heart discovers
the tragedy of autumn
raining from the trees.


Federico García Lorca

Its Autumn here and I'm wallowing in it...... though the leaves are slow in falling.

Hi Robyn, that was always an amazing thing for me, autumn and spring, winter and summer in two places at the same time.
I like these verses like this - taken out of the poem, powerful and clear like a Haiku poem :)
