Nothing Gold Can Stay

I love the book The Outsiders, such a classic.  If you haven't read it yet, you must. Makes me cry every time.  There's this poem in it, Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost, that is so beautiful.  I hope it makes you think about life and how we can't turn back and we can't stay once we've gone forward.  We must endeavor to stay 'gold', because our wrongs can't be undone.

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.
