Nothing Gold Can Stay Poem by Robert Frost

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Rating: 4.3


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.

It's about youth. Enjoy your youth, bc it'll be gone before you know it. Innocence is the green and the gold.
