Delightful Dialogue: The Outsiders

Ponyboy: 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.

Johnny: Where did you learn that? That's what I meant.

Ponyboy: Robert Frost wrote it. I always remembered it because I never quite knew what he meant.

~ C. Thomas Howell and Ralph Macchio in The Outsiders (1983)
