A Day of sharing words


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.


and the photo is a painting by artist/friend Darrell Roberts (1938-2008)
