Summer is over
Leaves are dropping to the ground
Some are, as yet, green

I would not get this in a million years.

It takes some time to get used to the puzzle maker´s way of thinking.

Ah, forgive me my friend, I wasn´t clear about cryptograms. That puzzle you showed is known here as a Brain Breaker. I meant the piilosana puzzle.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptic_crossword

Quote
Here is an example (taken from The Guardian crossword of 6 August 2002, set by "Shed").

-15D Very sad unfinished story about rising smoke ( 8 )

is a clue for TRAGICAL. This breaks down as follows.

-15D indicates the location and direction (down) of the solution in the grid
-"Very sad" is the definition
-"unfinished story" gives "tal" ("tale" with one letter missing; i.e., unfinished)
-"rising smoke" gives "ragic" (a "cigar" is a smoke and this is a down clue so "rising" indicates that "cigar" should be written up the page; i.e., backwards)
-"about" means that the letters of "tal" should be put either side of "ragic", giving "tragical"
-"( 8 )" says that the answer is a single word of eight letters.

I would not get this in a million years.
Wow, they really pulled no punches when trying to make it hard.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Constantinople
Rio de Janerio

A strange collection
Of places where people live

Thought this was over.
You have proved me wrong again.
Can openers suck.
