Nothing Gold Can Stay

Poem by 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 to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.

    Read this in tandem with Carl Sandburg poem Autumn Movement. The themes are similar, but said in different ways. They both capture the painful feeling of letting go for nothing lasts in the state we first fall in love with. We as humans have to constantly let go and yield to change. Bless you Carl and Robert.(Report)Reply

    It’s because you have no understanding or experience of love, loss and grief.
