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.

--Robert Frost

I can not believe you chose this Robert Frost poem, today. My youngest sister died in 1989 at age 17. This was her favorite poem. We had it put on her grave stone. I rarely make it back to rural SC and I will be going there this weekend.

These are beautiful pictures you chose to post with this poem. THANK YOU for this beautiful morning blessing!

PS: Sitka has an award for you at All GODs Creatures.

A) I really, really love the sky in these shots. Such contrast.

B) I love the addition of Frost's poem. Makes me want to pull out my favorite poetry volumes today.

The ominous sky really lends itself to the frost poem--it works well artistically on multiple levels!

I've been thinking of that poem a lot lately. Our autumn was very fleeting.
Your photos are beautiful!
