The Famous Stuff

I think alot of people get introduced to Robert Frost early on. I know I did. It’s at school. Or in life somewhere.  It’s in one of the more famous movies: “The Outsiders”.  But it was a BOOK first.  The author, S.E. Hinton,  includes this Frost poem in her book. It’s a main theme. Keep in mind, Ms. Hinton, was 17 when she wrote the book. I have always been in awe of that skill. So this is my first of the famous:

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.
