More Light

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.

"Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold."
S.E. Hinton The Outsiders

  5. I remember learning this poem when I had Lucy for a teacher in 7th grade! It used to be my favorite poem. How great it is that you used it to describe this picture!
