Dawn goes down to day

Lately, I've been reading a lot of poetry. I love poetry that incorporates nature, so the first poem that always comes to my mind is "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost. I first read this poem when we read The Outsiders in 7th grade, and it became the first poem I ever memorized entirely. I was, and still am, captivated by it, so hopefully you'll like it too :)

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. Those are my favorite types of poems, short, perfect pacing, and makes me imagine the scene they're writing about :)

  2. I like that, don't recall seeing it before. I don't usually care for Frost but that was good. Seriously. I'm more a fan of Yeats, e.e. cummings, Dylan Thomas, William Carlos Williams, and my all-time favorite is Theodore Roethke.

  3. Lol you're making me feel seriously unsophisticated because I've never been truly able to understand poetry!

    I'm glad it makes you happy though :)


Your comments are like cake to me. I can never get enough.
