Why not to surrender?

Еще одно стихотворение на английском языке.

Leaves are falling down
Telling their own story
Days are becoming brown
Remembering their glory

It’s a foggy time without words
Rapid actions march ahead
Predatory hostile swords
Turn the white into dark red

A harsh and severe hour
Is making a new day
An unknown ashy power
Coerce to believe and pray

Crosses are drawn with chalk
To be easily erased in a right time
There’s a silent fearful talk
Which’s supposed to be a crime

Leaves are falling down
Whispering something tender
Days are becoming brown
And why not to surrender?
