Hardest Hue to Hold

Poet Robert Frost once said that nature's first green is gold, but I'm finding nature's last green is gold too! For a few days I arrived home under a golden canopy. It was lovely! Sadly, as Frost tells us, nothing gold can stay.Going . . . . . . going . . . . . . gone. :-(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(1874-1963)
