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.

    I think that it, while good, was very short. I wish it was longer, but as Robert Frost says, Nothing Gold can Stay

    This really affects my heart. The extended metaphor is fabulously expressed through the brilliant vocabulary and organization.
