Nature’s first green is gold…

“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, “Nothing Gold Can Stay”

A new day will come. 

And when the sun shines 

it will shine out the clearer.

“Where books had been a comfort before, they became a necessity, old books best of all: thick heavy tomes with stories that spread and twisted through other worlds, where he could walk like a ghost in the footsteps of other lives.” ― Alexia Casale
