“Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour…”

Anna cried when she saw the dying amaryllis and asked me to make it "stay little, like me." If I could do such things, love, right now would last forever.

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
