Leaves of Gold

By Abby Johanson, age 17, South Carolina


The dance of beautiful colors
And the swift waltz of leaves
Usher in gold and fall into the world

A season that doesn’t last
Significance perceived
That never lingers, never stays

But as the autumn tides roll in
We learn there are far more important
Things than golden leaves

Far more important crowns of glory
And love than jewel-encrusted tiaras
And golden rings on fingers
