Today I chose a shorter poem for Poetry Tuesday. It can be found in the book A Treasury of Poetry for Young People.

In Hardwood Groves

by Robert Frost

The same leaves over and over again!

They fall from giving shade above

To make one texture of faded brown

And fit the earth like a leather glove.

Before the leaves can mount again

To fill the trees with another shade,

They must go down past things coming up.

They must go down into the dark decayed.
