Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.




Robert Frost
 
 One of the few poems from my youth that I can recite the whole poem..and it's all due to the book, "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton, which was also made into a movie in the 80's..
