autumn haiku d'automne – a golden spell = ce charme doré 




a golden spell
haunts maple leaves
without a sound

ce charme doré
hante les feuilles d'érable
sans aucun son

from this quote by Richard Broadbent
 
"The days may not be so bright and balmy—yet the quiet and melancholy that linger around them is fraught with glory. Over everything connected with autumn there lingers some golden spell—some unseen influence that penetrates the soul with its mysterious power."
