* "Nothing Gold Can Stay"

How many have walked through the Divinity School campus, a reproduction of Jefferson's University of Virginia? There is one enormous  golden maple near the refectory under which I have soaked up serenity many autumns as the leaves cascaded through the sunlight.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

by Robert Frost
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.
