BW26: Nothing Gold can Stay by Robert Frost


Josephine Wall Surreal 

We're halfway through the year and July is almost upon us.  Where have your reading journeys taken you so far this year?  My year has turned into 'what are you in the mood for' which means lots of romance and dragons, librarians, and villains.  Can you just hear lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Just me? Oh well! I'm also enjoying rereading Nora Roberts back list which has been comforting as well as feeding my muse and inspiring me to be creative.  What inspires you to create a story, a song, a recipe, a new crafts project? Share some of your creations.   

This week's mini quest is to read something with half in the title. And since we're about to go through another heat wave, better yet, read something cozy.  Perhaps take a literary trip to the Antarctic or maybe while a few hours away in a tropical climate while drinking a fruit cocktail with one of those cheerful little umbrellas  ~Cheers!  

Nothing Gold Can Stay


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.

Count of Monte Cristo

  1. Your "whatever you are in the mood for" reading sounds great! I think reading what I am in the mood for is one thing that inspires me to be creative. Other things that inspire creativity in my life are rest, quiet and nature.


Thank you for your kind comments.
