>Nothing Gold Can Stay by robert frost

>This is a photograph of the most precious gift I’ve ever been given by a client as a veterinarian. This photograph does not do the beauty of it justice! This gift came to me by the way of a loss of a gelding that was most dear to her…he was gently laid to rest last week after years of terrible arthritic discomfort and pain.

Nothing Gold Can Stay
by 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.

In memory of Casino…a great horse!
