nothing gold can stay is a very meaningful poem.
it is so true that no good things can stay. life will have to go on someday
no matter what. the way robert frost portrayed this fact is unique and
intellectual. he used nature and the four different seasons to describe.
the meaning of this poem goes way deep down and i really enjoyed this poem.
treasure whatever you have now as it wouldn't last forever. :p
p.s. cherish!!

I really enjoyed this poem.Basicallly its telling people things do not last
long.It is interesting how Robert used nature as a tool to represent this.
It also tells about the loss of the innocence of men;using the Bible story
Adam and Eve.We should always cherish wat we have before it is gone. I'm
also surprised to see my classmates giving comments.
Hey Jackson Loh, do u have to repeat wat u say?? haz

This peom is mainly about the imperance of things that do not last
forever.It kind of means that we have to treasure happiness in life as it
is usually short -lived. It has a connection to "The Outsiders " too,ppl
should read this book.

the poem tells us about how short happiness can be in our life like how
gold can't stay.Our life is precious and valuable we must not have any
doubts about t.

Nothing Gold Can Stay is simply stating that this world is everchanging and
always will be. Knowing, and appreciating this fact will bless our lives in
that, we will savor and enjoy every moments to its absolute fullest. We
will stop in the woods on a snowy evening to bask in the silence and beauty
there (even though we have miles to go before we sleep) because seizing the
beautiful moments at even the strangest times is what's going to help us
live a life without regret.

lastly, i learn that we ought to cherish every single thing we have. gold,
it might be. but it can just fall off as leaves fall off day, by day.

we should live life to the fullest, be contented with whatever we have as
we learn to cherish them. once something is gone, it might not be able to
return to us once again. with this, i hope every one who have read the
poem benifit in one way or another. most importantly, learn that nothing in
life can stay forever and ever.

nothing gold can stay. it is a poem which acutally means alot. though i
have to confess that at first, i didnt really think this poem was of which
any influenced. but as mrs lum and classmates and my group starts to
evaluate the poem slowly, it meant of great influenced to me. it might
sound rather profound at first, but it has hidden meanings behind.
firstly, i find this poem a poem to wake me up. nothing can stay forever
and ever. we have to learn to cherish whatever we have in our life now
before we lose it. it maybe too late after we lose whatever we did not
cherish before.
secondly, every one makes mistakes. but being youthful and young, we are
able to correct ourselves.

only to read. You should never look on the down side of things always keep
your head high and stay proud no matter what.-Stay Gold-

i think that this poem is very interesting. im doing a lierary analysis
paper in my english class and im not exactly sure what this means. i get
the fact the frost is trying to tell us that we need to appreciate what we
hae because it will not be there forever. but is this about nature or our
