Nature's First Green is Gold


Here is my entry for this weeks Gothic Arch Challenge theme of 'Gold'. I have choosen a poem by Robert Frost titled "Nature's First Green". I remember being 12 and my Mum (being an English teacher) brought home the movie 'The Outsiders'. I must have watched this film about 35 times over the two weeks that Mum was using it for her year 9's. I have never forgotten this poem and I often recite it to myself whenever I'm up early enough to see the sun rise.
