Nothing Gold Can Stay

Posted by mountainmelody On 11/18/2010 08:31:00 PM
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 my favorite of Frost's . . . He so captures the bittersweetness of it all.
