Nothing Gold Can Stay*

The weather forecast is for snow tonight, so before the leaves are all blown away or covered up, here are today’s colours.

*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.


  1. Oh, yes, so timely to capture these gorgeous images! Maybe it’s brief, transitory time is one of the reasons I love fall and it’s glorious colors.

  2. Beautiful photos and my favorite poem (in a tie with a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins–starts “Margaret are you grieving over Goldengrove unleaving”

    Thanks Anne!

  3. Thanks for including the link to Spring and Fall, Anne. The title slipped my mind, but I’ll always remember the first and last lines.
