                                  Nothing Gold Can Stay
                                      Robert Frost
                               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.
