Stay Gold, Ponyboy

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, 1923

From S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders¬†

Johnny: It’s like the mist is what’s pretty, ya know? All gold and silver.

Ponyboy: Hmm

Johnny: Too bad it can’t stay like that all the time.

Ponyboy: Nothing gold can stay.

¬†—-

Johnny’s last lines to Ponyboy: Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold.
