fruit or all?

Behold the tree:
Its leaves all green in spring
Fire or earthen by late autumn
Seeds on wing or in nut or pod
See that straight row of trees?
Their parent fell there, and true
Keeping offspring in line
Which is its fruit or all?
Leaves or shade or seed
Or from death new life?
O Human, answer:
Your hands, your feet, your children,
Your work, your money, your death
Which is your fruit or all?
