The morns are meeker than they were
Language: English 
Available translation(s): FRE GER GER ITA
The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.

I mattini si sono fatti più miti
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the English 
I mattini si sono fatti più miti -
le noci diventano più scure -
più rotonda è la guancia della bacca -
E la rosa è andata in vacanza.

L'Acero veste una sciarpa più allegra -
indossano i campi un vestito scarlatto -
Ed io pure, per non apparire fuori moda,
mi metterò un ciondolo.
