“No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face.”

John Donne
(21 Jan 1572 - 31 Mar 1631)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   At 10:21 AM EDT today, Fall officially began. And because this is one of my favorite songs, it seems to repeat nearly every year:

BONUS #1 - - Autumn Leaves - Nat King Cole

BONUS #2 - - Autumn Leaves - Frank Sinatra

BONUS #3 - - Autumn Leaves (Les Feuilles Mortes) - Edith Piaf


"Autumn Leaves" is a popular song. Originally it was a 1945 French song, "fr:Les feuilles mortes" (literally "The Dead Leaves"), with music by Hungarian-French composer Joseph Kosma and lyrics by poet Jacques Prévert. The Hungarian title is "Hulló levelek" (Falling Leaves). Yves Montand (with Irène Joachim) introduced "Les feuilles mortes" in the film Les Portes de la nuit (1946).[1]

Back in my hippie college days, a professor came up to me in the cafeteria and asked me, "Ya dig?"

I thought to myself, this guy's pretty far out. I answered, "Yeh, man. I dig!"

That's how I got hoodwinked into joining his archaeological expedition.

 Autumn Leaves

Music by Joseph Kosma, 1945
(22 Oct 1905 – 07 Aug 1969)

French lyrics by
Jacques Prévert, 1945
(04 Feb 1900 - 11 Apr 1977)

English lyrics by
Johnny Mercer, 1947
(18 Nov 1909 – 25 June 1976)

The falling leaves drift by the window,
The autumn leaves of red and gold.
I see your lips, the summer kisses,
The sun-burned hands I used to hold.

Since you went away the days grow long,
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song,
But I miss you most of all, my darling,
When autumn leaves start to fall.

C’est une chanson, qui nous ressemble
Toi tu m’aimais et je t’aimais
Nous vivions tous, les deux ensemble
Toi que m’aimais moi qui t’aimais
Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s’aiment
Tout doucement sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable les pas des amants désunis
