"Nothing Gold Can Stay"




NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY

Robert Frost

Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leafs 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.


In the middle of everything is

T H E   S U N. 

Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543)
Polish Astronomer

THE JOY OF THE HEART MAKES THE FACE MERRY

English Proverb

The glorious lamp of heaven,

 the   SUN.

Robert Herrick (1591-1674)
English Poet

If you can spend

    a perfectly useless  afternoon     

 in a perfectly useless manner,

You have learned how to live.

Lin Yutang (1895-1976)
Chinese writer and philologist


The sunset caught me, turned the brush to copper, set the clouds to one

GREAT ROOF OF FLAME ABOVE THE EARTH.

Elizabeth Coatsworth (1893-1986)
American Writer


The sun lay like a friendly arm

across her shoulder.

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (1869-1953) 
 American writer

It is always sunrise

somewhere;

the dew is never all dried at once;

a shower is forever falling;

vapor is ever rising.

Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset,

eternal dawn...

John Muir (1838-1914)
American naturalist.

If you are as enchanted with these words as I, then you will love the book SUNFLOWERS from which these lovely words came.  Order it here for mere pennies. Truly,


Is there anything happier than a sunflower?
