Nothing Gold Can Stay

Poetry is one of the things that’s sort of fallen by the wayside in my Busy Mom Life. But today this poem popped into my head. It’s one of my favorites of all time, and I still have it memorized from years ago. I’m always reminded of it during fall, and since today is the first official day of autumn, I thought I’d share. Enjoy. 🙂

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.

– Robert Frost
