I also read The Outsiders and it not only relates to that but i also found
that it can be portrayed as the strength of the family. The Curtis Family
was a family of gold and it was hard to stay gold and strong but they
overcame. It is a truly awesome use of poetry in a novel. I give it three
thumbs up!

Hey bird, I read the outsiders when I was in seventh grade. If you pay
attention, johnny says that it means that when you are a kid, you're gold.
Eveyrthing is new. Like the way Ponyboy digs sun sets, that's gold.

This poem is one of my old favorites. I read it in 8th grade like everyone
else (didn't know so many people read the outsiders in 8th grade too) This
poem to me means how in nature everything is so pure and peaceful but only
at dawn. Once day set's in everything is ruined. Just like in this world;
when you are born your are pure and honest, but once you grow up you become
"evil" you lose your inocence~

I am in the 8th grade and I also had to read this poem in the book The
Outsiders and also in my literature book. I think it is about nature and
how at first everthing is young and green but eventually it dies. It is
also referring to life and how we are all young and innocent at first.
