I usually don’t post another poet’s work, but who wouldn’t post Robert Frost?!?!?!
I took this photo a few weeks ago, at the height of Northern New Jersey’s autumn. It reminds me of Frost’s poem Nothing Gold Can Stay.
Nothing Gold Can Stay
by Robert Frost
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafs 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.
