Les matins sont plus doux qu'ils ne l'étaient --
Les noisettes deviennent brunes --
La joue des baies est plus dodue --
La Rose est loin des villes.

L'érable porte une écharpe plus gaie --
Le champ une robe écarlate --
De crainte que je ne sois pas à la mode
Je mettrai un colifichet.


Translations of title(s):
"The morns are meeker" = "Les matins sont plus doux "
"Autumn" = "Automne"
"The morns are meeker than they were" = "Les matins sont plus doux qu'ils ne l'étaient"

Je vous dirai comment le Soleil s'est levé --
Un Ruban à la fois --
les Clochers nageaient dans l'Améthyste --
Les nouvelles, comme les Écureuils, couraient --
Les Collines détachaient leurs bonnets --
Les Goglus des prés -- commençaient --
Alors je me dis doucement --
« Ce devait être le Soleil » !
Mais comment il s'est couché -- je ne sais pas --
Il semblait qu'il y avait un échalier pourpre
Que des petits garçons et de filles en Jaune
Escaladaient tout le temps --
Jusqu'à ce que quand ils eurent atteint l'autre côté
Un Pasteur en Gris --
Posa doucement les barres du soir --
Et amena son troupeau --


Translations of title(s):
"The sun" = "Le soleil"
"How the sun rose" = "Comment le soleil s'est levé"
"I'll tell you how the sun rose" = "Je vous dirai comment le Soleil s'est levé"
"A day" = "Un jour"

Comme est heureuse la petite Pierre
Qui se promène seule sur la Route,
Et ne se soucie pas des Carrières
Et n'a jamais peur des Situations critiques --
Dont le manteau de Brun élémentaire
Est enfilé par l'Univers en passant,
Et indépendante comme le Soleil,
Elle s'associe ou brille toute seule,
Accomplissant un Décret absolu
En toute simplicité --


Translations of title(s):
"The little stone" = "La petite pierre"
"How happy is the little stone" = "Comme est heureuse la petite Pierre"

Quand ils prennent leur bistouri !
Sous leurs fines incisions
S'agite la Coupable -- la Vie !
