A poem by Robert Frost
"Nothing Gold Can Stay"
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.
Written/Published in 1923

"New Hampshire"


  1. Ohmigosh, Stacy! This is one of my hubby's favorite poems. He has a pretty large collection of Frost poetry, including some first editions. This is a beautiful poem! :)


  2. I remember it from the movie "The Outsiders", which had quite an impact on me as a teenager. I love this poem.

  3. I was thinking of "The Outsiders" when I read it too! Didn't Stevie Wonder or someone write a song based on it?
