In the End

Nature tutor by Umair Zia_Robert Frost

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 to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Not every lesson that Mother Nature teaches is a pleasant one, for things like Death are an unalterable reality. Yet even tough lessons like these are taught with such finesse that one can only accept wholeheartedly, being content in the reality even though it might not conform with one’s wishes.
