This peom means that, nothing is as beautifull, as it is when it is new,
its only the newness of it that makes it so beautifull to us.

I think it means that if there is something gold appreciate it while it is
still around. Like "Nature's first green is gold," I think this means when
your born it is just as good as gold. "Her hardest hue to hold," hue means
the color of the first green. When it first started natures leaf's made a
flower. But than it , the flower has disappered. The leaf fell to the
ground like what happens in the fall. Then nature was pictured as the name
Eden, like like it was sad that the leaves have fallen to the ground. The
dawn was the beginning of time and the day is when the flowers fell to the
ground. So since the leaves and flowers where gold, but then they
disappered so the gold went also.

In nothin gold can stay, it says"natures first green is gold."This line
means to me thatpeople should appreciate what they have when they are
young. the second line says"Her hardest hue to hold." This line means to me
that it is hard to hold on to the most precious things. In the third line
it says"Her early leaf's a flower." this line means to me that the earliest
things are the most beautiful. The line that says"So dawn goes down to
day." This means to me that the dark night will go to day, which means the
worst things can change into something good. the last line says"Nothing
gold can stay." This line means to me that good things can stay, but people
change so they don't think it is there.

In the poem nothing gold can stay, I think it is about
our lives. As the sun rises or as we get older we see the reality of life
more clearly, and the true color of things, and not the gold we saw as
young people. You will be old for a long time, and the sun will be shining
on the earth the whole day. The sunrise represents the youth of our

I think the poem nothing gold can stay is wrong and anything gold can stay
as long as you want it to stay and can make it stay.I also think that
whatever changes in your life is you and not always the world.
