The First Fall Frost MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

Anearly frost for winter, which is late for Fall
Crystallizes blades ofgrass,
to crunching freezer burn.
Tender plant stems witness
an almostdarker, cooler wind
that Winter touches earth.
A frost wasn't expected,and some of these were uncovered,
but our tickled, water-spritzed feet justspoon through the Fall icing.
Did any ample green survive,
the chilly lasthalf
Of the night?
Those - with their skin unbitten - have morning'sdew
Normal, clingy, warm, stickiness
Revitalize them at dawn.
