Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost

Jumping back to probably my favorite poet, Robert Frost, here is one of my favorite of his works.  Please take the time to watch the video by clicking the link below.  It was actually this movie, “The Outsiders”, and this scene in particular which got me started reading Robert Frost’s poetry.  The scene is great by itself but much more meaningful in the context of the whole film.  If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.

The Outsiders: Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nothing Gold Can Stay
by Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafs 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.
