Nothing Gold Can Stay

I just had to share this collection created by Blessed Earth Designs on ArtFire.  It was inspired by one of my favorite poems from Robert Frost, "Nothing Gold Can Stay", which is part of the book  The Outsiders, written by S.E. Hinton.  I read the book as a young teenager and fell in love with the characters, and was completely drawn in to the story.  I've read it many times since then, and it's just as good as the first time.  This book inspired much of my writing as a teenager.  Having my Lighted Pixie Tree House included in this collection is a true honor.
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

"Stay gold, Ponyboy.  Stay Gold." ~Johnny Cade
