Nature's last gold is green


Autumn Tribute to Frost
by Leah D. Schade

Nature's last gold is green
Her secret hue unseen
Her final leaf to feed
The coming season's seed.
As leaf subsides to leaf,
So Easter springs from grief.
Then dusk foretells new day:
Hope from gold's decay.


Frost's Original:
Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
   -- Robert Frost
