Luis Cuauhtémoc Berriozabal

  

Autumn and Winter

Back under the pepper tree
I spoke to the dog
Buried there under its shade.

I was not expecting answers.
I was drunk with autumn
And winter would be no different.

This time of year I marvel at
The changes in the weather.
I welcome the cold and rain.

The muses sing from the branches,
A blackbird and a crow.
I prefer the crow's drunken song.
