Chanson d'automne

Autumnal equinox. An exercise in melancholy. I learned this in school. Still one of the only poems I can recite by heart. It was written to be read aloud, slowly. Typecast on my Remington Rand Model 1, the one with accents... and feet. Thanks to Florian for the timely reminder!


  1. Nice. I love both this clear and minimalistic layout and the poem. And I'm glad someone replied on my idea of autumn entries. :)

  2. Sorry Florian, I 'forgot' to cite you as inspiration. I'll correct that right away.

  3. What a beautiful poem! I've always been a distant fan of Verlaine, have to be in the right mood and I guess I am today. Thanks for sharing! Richard/Texas
