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.

Robert Frost poem.

The first time I read this poem was when I read the book “The Outsiders” I had to do a book report. Gawd how I hated to HAVE to read. But I just chose a book randomly because we had to do a stupid book report. Now don’t get me wrong, I like to read, just don’t want to HAVE to read and THEN tell you what the book was about. But once I opened the book and started reading, I couldn’t put it down. BUT I guess the purpose of doing a book report was so the teacher good check your writing skills. 😆

Let me just say, the English language has way to many rules and regulations, WITH exceptions to the rules and regulations. AND to this day I still get the grammer police on me behind my grammer when making a comment. 😂 I have no doubt in my mind some of the people here who start reading my blogs think, (oh I’ll give her a like, she’s young and may be aspiring to be a writer. Let me encourage this potential writer) 😂 When the fact is, I am not a young aspiring writer, but an old aspiring small business owner. But that’s neither here nor there this was to be about the poem.

Most often I tell me son to “stay gold” he laughs because he knows I’m quoting the movie. If you’ve not seen the movie, I highly recommend you read the book, THEN watch the movie.

Ok I’ve blogged read it at you leisure, enjoy.
