Nothing Gold Can Stay

BOTD-103110-003Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost (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.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

I don’t have a lot to write about, but I love the poetry of Robert Frost.  I hope that you enjoy this Autumn themed poem.  I will get a little more inspiration later, until them, enjoy this short bit of poetry. –JB

Jay, Robert Frost is one of my all time favorite poets. "The Road Not Taken" is my absolute favorite.
