Autumn Leaves

Autumn is one of my favorite times of year & this autumn has been glorious. The changing of the seasons has been absolutely gloriously dramatic. And so refreshing after the most decided lack of seasons' change in SoCal. Here's a glimpse of what we experienced here...along with the lyrics of one of my all time favorite songs...especially if sung by Eva Cassidy or Patricia Kaas.
The Autumn Leaves
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

(French lyrics by Jacques Prévert, English lyrics by Johnny Mercer, Music by Joseph Kosma)
