Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost

[the first poem I ever memorized - found online at http://quotations.about.com/cs/poemlyrics/a/Nothing_GoldCan.htm]


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.

Gosh, I love Frost's works. He uses such amazing imagery and symbolism, even in such a compacted poem. "So Eden sank to grief . . ." So pretty.
