Nothing Gold Can Stay

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.

Kaiser Haq addresses issues of marginality, subalternity in this poem.
a nice and interesting poem.
This poem is considered as the flag of Subaltern. it demands the sartorial equality
