POEM OF THE DAY: Nothing Gold Can Stay

by Robert Frost (1874 – 1963).

Nothing Gold Can Stay (before 1923)

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.            5
So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
