                           Nothing Gold Can Stay
                                   by 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.
