D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

L’Autoun The Autumn
Drawing by Gustav Adolf Mossa published in Anthologie de la chanson niçoise, éd. Delrieu, to illustrate L’Autoun.

Dejà l’autoun, l’ària refrèia,
En viroulant cascon li fuèia.
Serra li flour, enduèrme li cansoun,
Ai jour fa lèu la souloumbrina ;
Sus lu pensié ’stènde una brina,
Manda’n la vida e nuèch e fernisoun,
Manda’n la vida e nuèch e fernisoun,
 Already the autumn, the air gets colder,
Whirling down are the leaves.
It teds the flowers, it sends to sleep the songs,
     The autumn.
To the day follows quickly the darkness;
On the thoughts it spreads out a mist,
It sends in the life and the night and the shivers,
     The autumn.
It sends in the life and the night and the shivers,
     The autumn.

Au bèu jardin que mouor
Se li es enca’na rosa,
L’amour la n’en prouposa
Coum’an darrié tresor
Per embaumà lou couor.
Mé la darrièra rosa
Dòu bèu jardin,
Dòu bèu jardin que mouor.
 In the beautiful dying garden
If there is still a rose,
Love proposes it to us
As a last treasure
To be fragrant with the heart.
With the last rose (1)
Of the beautiful garden,
Of the beautiful dying garden.

1. The Last Rose of Summer, of course!
