Fall contains all the other seasons to an extent. However, I question if fall has an identity of its own. Some think it is a magnificent canvas, others feel it is nothing but a rehash of time.
The following poem is a Yadu. Yadu means “season” in Burmese.
The ancient Burmese language is tonal, mono-syllabic, non-plural, and analytic. There are 4 lines per verse and 4 syllables in “climbing rhyme” per line.
The 5th line has 5, 7, 9 or 11 syllables.
A traditional Yadu has 3 verses. This Yadu has a 4th verse -an envoi. If you have any comments or poems send them to email@example.com.
