The Sunday Posts 2012/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.

Dedicated to the 27 souls lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

We lit a candle for them last night and put it on the hearth, so it would be a constant reminder. I love the Robert Frost poem (and enjoy his poetry anyway.)

Those poor little souls - and their families who have to try and carry on now.

Oh, what can I say...we all want to reach out to the families and friends of the victims. Frost said it well, didn't he?
