Leaf Fall - Poem by Can Yücel

Those leaves that turned red before they yellowed and fell
all through the autumn put on a splendid display.

As the season turned and the wind began to freshen again
in the nakedness of that horse it's them who'll run
those children
those leaves,
those wine-reddened brigands.

Without them who else would I have.

Translated by Esra Nilgün Mirze and Richard McKane
