Transcript of Nature's first green is gold,

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

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature rarer uses Yellow
Than another Hue.
Saves she all of that for Sunsets
Prodigal of Blue

Spending Scarlet, like a Woman
Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly
Like a Lover's Words.

Nature Rarer Uses Yellow
-Emily Dickinson
nature poetry unwrapping
These pools that, though in forests, still reflect
The total sky almost without defect,
And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver,
Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone,
And yet not out by any brook or river,
But up by roots to bring dark foliage on.
The trees that have it in their pent-up buds
To darken nature and be summer woods---
Let them think twice before they use their powers
To blot out and drink up and sweep away
These flowery waters and these watery flowers
From snow that melted only yesterday.

Spring Pools
-Robert Frost

Summative Analysis

Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963) was an American poet, one of the foremost of the 20th century. His work frequently drew inspiration from rural life in New England, using the setting to explore complex social and philosophical themes. A popular and often-quoted poet, Frost was highly honored during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes. Frost was born in San Francisco to Isabelle Moodie, of Scottish ancestry, and William Prescott Frost, Jr., a descendant of a Devonshire Frost who had sailed to New Hampshire in 1634. Robert Frost was influenced after his two daughters died when they were born. Nothing gold can stay actually means a tender if heartbreaking expression of the transience of beauty and the grief of mortality.

Situation: The situation is that everything is fading very fast, And its not fading into anything pretty.

poetic devices
: Some of the ending letters of the sentences rhyme, not all, but that is an example of rhyme.

Mixture Of Seasons
The Trees sway
But only for a day
I see the crows
They rarely ever show
I see the flowers smiling
Then the next minute the leaves are piling
Now all it does is snow
And when its windy it starts to blow
So while warm weather is here
You must enjoy it because cold weather is near.
-Kelly Lause

mixture of seasons.
Nature Has No limits
Nature really has no limits
It does whatever whenever
It changes very randomly
Nature can change feelings and moods
It can pretty much change your day
It can do whatever it wants
Nature does not have boundaries
It follows you like a shadow
It always likes to mimic us
Nature will never go away
-Kelly Lause
Everything in nature

i see the flower bloom in the spring
i see the faun hop after the doe
i see the blue jay fly on its wing
i see the farmer work with his hoe.

i hear the robin singing a song
i hear the leaves blowing in the breeze
i hear the river moving along
i hear the nasty animals tease.

i feel the warm summer coming in
i feel the coldness becoming less
I feel the birds pecking on my shin
I feel the grass becoming a mess.
-Kelly Lause

Closing statement/Acknowledgments
i have learned that Nature is great, changes fast, and that it cant stay forever. My Mom and friends have inspired me to write these things because they keep me motivated to do things! Influences that have made me who i am today are my friends for giving me my personality, my Dad for making me strong, and society, society hasn't exactly helped me in the best way but it has defiantly made me a stronger person then i was, it helped me realize the real world.
