Nothing Gold

I know that the poet is right, but just for today, January 1st, I’m going to hold onto gold as if it lasts forever.

***********

Nothing Gold Can Stay

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.

— Robert Frost
