Stay Gold

Nothing Gold Can Stay – 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 o grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Grab your early morning coffee (or afternoon cocktail), take time to relax, ponder, and enjoy….

    Love the Robert Frost poem. It’s what I’ve been thinking these past few days – this stunning gold won’t last forever!!! Nice image.

    Seize upon that moment long ago
    One breath away and there you will be
    So young and carefree
    Again you will see
    That place in time…so gold

    Steal away into that way back when
    You thought that all would last forever
    But like the weather
    Nothing can ever…and be in time
    Stay gold

    But can it be
    When we can see
    So vividly
    A memory
    And yes you say
    So must the day
    Too, fade away
    And leave a ray of sun
    So gold

    Life is but a twinkling of an eye
    Yet filled with sorrow and compassion
    Though not imagined
    All things that happen
    Will age too old
    Though gold

    What a wonderful diversion for the day,
    a wonderful tree in a field of gold,
    A a favorite poem,
    A new song from a old friend,
    A new poem.

    Thanx Sue!

    it reminds me of this:

    I stand and see before me,
    a treasure bold and true.
    Who’s colors do surround me,
    in all its glory and hue.
    an image clearly magic,
    a scene before my eyes.
    A dose of god’s creation
    Is always a suprise.
