Memorizing Poetry: Nothing Gold Can Stay

I have made a new resolution for myself. I want to memorize at least two poems each month. This month, it being so late, I will probably only memorize one. With my penchant for short poems, this should not be a difficult resolution to keep.

I love the idea of growing old with dozens of beautiful poems tucked away in my memory, ready to be brought out and recited at the drop of a hat.

This is my first choice:

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.
