It's my happy place.

It’s #WorldPoetryDay, y’all! To celebrate, I’m posting one of my favorite poems, one that I learned as a child after reading what became one of my all-time favorite books, The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.

Nothing Gold Can Stay
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.

Thanks, Mr. Frost, S.E. Hinton, and Ponyboy Curtis.

      Aw, thanks. Well, when you watch a movie 11 times in the theater, and then a MILLION times since then, a poem that’s this lovely tends to get stuck in one’s brain. 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed. Frost is simple, but I loves him. ❤
