In this poem Frost is explaining life by using metaphors in nature. He
gives us the examples of leaves, flowers, and sunsets. He is telling us
that nothing lasts forever and we need to enjoy our lives in the moment. A
counter example of this is Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby who believe he
could win back the love of Dasiy Buchanan by recreating the past. Frost is
telling us not to do this and just to take life for what it is.

i think that this poem has a pretty good rhyme. it is also short and to the
point. its kind of depressing.

this poem shows how things are constantly changing and you have to treasure
things while they are there.

This poem is saying that nothing lasts forever. I think the poet chose
"nothing gold" because although expensive objects such as gold and other
jewelry may last forever unlike the flower and the dawn, gold and other
jewelry will not keep us happy forever. So in a way I see, the theme of the
poem is also saying "money can't buy happiness."

What this poem means that nothing in life can stay forever, it eventually
go away or die, but for that time it can be gold or a gift

it is the truth that nothing gold can stay in universe, and human indeed
are hopeless. is this an new version of the idea from gulliver's travels?
the grievous tone emerging from the poem manifested somewhat poet's
weariness. Maybe...
