autumn haiku d'automne – a sparrow = un moineau = un passero

in English, French, Italian and Latin




a sparrow
with a broken wing -
freezing rain

un moineau
une aile cassée  -
verglas

un passero
con un'ala rotta -
pioggia fredda

passer
ala fracta -
imber frigus

Pronounce the Latin like Italian.

winter d’hiver – from freezing rain = la pluie verglaçante


winter d’hiver – from freezing rain = la pluie verglaçante 

from freezing rain
to a wind blown ice storm –
are we ducks spooked?

la pluie verglaçante 
ensuite la tempête de verglas –
les canards s’en fichent
