M0806 = Perry589. Source: Odo, Fable 7. This is Perry 589. Saint Martin’s Day, or Martinmas, is celebrated on November 11, so you could certainly imagine the leaves would be falling at that time. The English phrase “Saint Martin’s Summer” is equivalent to the American “Indian Summer,” referring to a warm spell that would come on in the fall before winter set in. Compare the fable of Hercules and the man bitten by a flea, #703, or the story of the little regulus bird, #411.
