In Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost there are many literally devices
used. The first device I noticed was that Frost uses rhyming words at the
end of each line. This sets up for a baisc rhythm throughout the entire
poem. The second device was color sybolism, this is a contrast between two
unlike things and uses a common color to describe it. Lastlty, this poem
was continuously used in the book The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. In The
Outsiders the poem was used for the purpose of nothing good can last. I
believe Frost is trying to use nature and colors to say nothing good can
last forever so cherish every moment you have.

This poem describes so much about life.
It talks about how nothing good or beautiful can last eternally.
It's sad to think that our world is like this, but it's also beautiful
because we can learn from mistakes and be thankful that our world is not an
utopia one.

It's totally related to karma, also .
What goes around comes around.
Even though things doesn't stay the same after a while, we should learn how
to live and appreciate the new change.

Frost uses a great deal of imagery in his poems. This poem specifically
takes the way colors change in nature to show the passage of time. Since
the flower dies after a short amount of time and the Garden of Eden also
falls, Frost refers to how no good thing lasts forever. When Frost uses the
seasons as a metafor, it can also mean that those good times will
eventually return.

This poem has a great deal of imagery. I think that the imagery is used to
describe how good things in life dont last forever. The poem is not just
about nature but about life. Its a wonderful poem.
