Poetry Friday and New Blog Design

Happy Poetry Friday! Mommy's Favorite Children's Books is sporting a new design, created by Jennisa at Once Upon a Blog. (She is wonderful and fast!) The header image of a sunny summer day reminds me of this poem by Robert Frost, which helps me focus on the precious moments with my young children.

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.

-- Robert Frost

This week's Poetry Friday is hosted by Wild Rose Reader. Enjoy!

This is one of my favorites too. Hold onto those golden moments!

I first read this as a kid, and I guess it's been buried somewhere in those mental files ever since, though I know it affected me strongly at the time. Thanks for reminding me!

This poem always reminds me of the book/movie The Outsiders.
Stay gold, Ponyboy.

I flashed to The Outsiders as well!!! Loved that poem, probably the only poem I can recite from MS/HS altogether!!
