Nothing Gold Can Stay - A Poem By Robert Frost

This is my favorite poem. Watch the Outsiders and listen to the song by Stevie Wonder...

Natures 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...

Johnny couldn't put it better:
"It means your gold when your a kid, like green. Everything is new, dawn. Its only when you grow up that you get used to everything. Like the way you dig sunsets Pony, thats gold. Keep it that way. Its a good way to be."
