Gold Boots in the Rain

Gold Boots in the Rain

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.

Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost

It was an ugly, rainy day. As I was making my way to work I spotted these boots sitting atop a garbage shed.

There was something about the combination of the overcast day, gold coloring of the boots, and the red brick wall that made me do a double take. I had to stop (even though I was wet and the rain was still coming down) and take a picture.
