Stay Gold

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.

I remember reading "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton and of course this poem has stayed with me for years. Ponyboy Curtis and Johnny, who remembers them?
