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.

 

Probably one of Frost’s more famous works.  It was featured in The Outsiders as well as in a New Found Glory song/album, pretty much cementing it into the mind of my generation and the one before me.  I know I’ll never forget the poem because of the book.
