Jacques Prévert: Fall (From French)

By Jacques Prévert
Translated by A.Z. Foreman
Click to hear me recite the original French

A horse falls over in an alley
Leaves fall onto it one by one
Our love is trembling.
So is the sun.

The Original:


Un cheval s'écroule au milieu d'une allée
Les feuilles tombent sur lui
Notre amour frissonne
Et le soleil aussi.

  1. Just a suggestion, I would simply translate "Les feuilles tombent sur lui" by The leaves fall on him.
