Forsythia is blooming!
Forsythia is blooming in Central Park


Robert Frost

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.

But what the poet doesn’t tell us is that it will be back next spring!

  1. “Nothing gold can stay.” So true and yet it does seem to always return. This year I really wondered if it would EVER come.

    Behold, we know not anything;
    I can but trust that good shall fall
    At last – far off – at last to all,
    And every winter change to spring.


    1. I wondered too. The Forsythia was late in blooming and spring late in coming, for sure. I love the Tennyson quote. I’ll use it next year when the Forsythia blooms!
