By Heart

I was skimming through my reader this morning my lovelies when I saw today’s daily post asking for a poem or song lyric that I know from heart and immediately one of my all-time favorite poems came to mind. Dismissing all the song lyrics that followed it šŸ˜€ I knew I wanted to post the poem because I’ve loved it since high school and the imagery in it always makes me sigh.

NothingĀ Gold Can Stay

Natureā€™s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafā€™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.
