Nothing Gold Can Stay

I am honestly so happy that spring is here and I can now come out of my winter hibernation (although, I was not so much in hibernation as in winters of the past). I am often very inactive in the winter, I know it’s not good for me but my mind is usually not able to to overcome my body’s urge to sloth about on the couch under a blanket with a kitteh on my lap.  Spring is the only thing that breaks the spell for me. Sunshine, warmer weather, green and gold on the landscape. Ah, my prescription for a healthier mind, body and soul.

And every spring, I remember the bittersweetness of  the very first poem I ever memorized.

“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.”

Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost
