I read this poem in the 'The Outsiders' wriiten by Hilton. I felt that this
poem is rather interesting. I think this poem is trying to convey to us
that nothing good could stay long. It teaches me how to cherish the things
around me more. I enjoyed this poem quite a lot.

This is a very nice poem because it describes about the nature very well.
sometimes it makes me want to stop and look at the sun-set. we must all
learn to appreciate the nature. i love this poem!

Tis poem is simply fantastic.I learnt it from the bk: The Outsiders and I
find tis poem very meaning. The poet is telling us to cherish every bit of
happiness that we have. I feel we should remember tis poem and use it as a
reminder to remind ourselves to cherish everything before they get lost and
then we start to regret it.

This is a very interesting poem i came across while studying The Outsiders.
It is a poem with a deep meaning and theme of nothing can last forever. The
poem shows that even the best things in life will come to an end, for
example, as stated in the poem "So dawn goes down to day". I like this poem
as it teaches people to treasure and appreciate what we have now and not
wait untill we lose it, then we regret.

i think that this poem is kind of dumb. Quite short. and life is also not
just about flowers and leaves. life's not that short either.

It is a nice poem with deep meaning. i did not quite get the meaning till
we did the poem analysis. It is about having cherish what we have as
nothing lasts forever

I came aceross this poem wheni was reading my lit novel the ountsiders and
i thought about this poem and found it very interesting
basically it is just saying that all good things must come to an end... no
matter how hard you try to hold on these things.. everyone ages and
innocence will always be affected by evil... it's the way things are in
this competitive world ..this poem also shows how quickly good things and
chances fade awayand about the cycle of life and death

well the poem is realli nice... great descriptions & emphasis that nothing
good in the world last forever. But if every precious thing lasts forever,
nobody will noe how to cherish. hah.
The Outsiders also very nice.. budden i dun see how the story links to
Nothing good lasts forever.. maybe i'll think harder.. hmm..
anyway rock on!!(:
