The poem touches deep inside.You do not have to get the meaning of "gold"
when you're a kid 'cause you are the "gold". When you find out is a bit
late, but not too late; you can still catch it, if you want to.

I think it means that there is innocence with all new things. A baby, a
puppy a budding leaf.....But these don't last nature moves on and we grow
its hard to stop it can't hang on. Then we discover or loose our innocene.
This grieves us.

This poem has some deep meaning in it. It says that Although there is good,
it won't stay good long.

I think this poem means that nothing good can stay but on the other hand
that good is around us all the time and that we should try to hang on to it
as much as we can.

WOW this poem touched me the second i read it. i was sitting in my 8th
grade english class readying the outsiders which im sure alot of people
have said && i had red ahead && when i finished my hand shot up && i asked
who wrote this poem. my teacher told me robert frost && that minute i knew
that this poem would stick with me. a year later in my 9th grade english
class we had to pick a person in literature that was of some importance to
us. the first person that jumped into my mind was robert frost && this
poem.

im glad that so many people around the world are touched by it. its a great
poem && an amazing poet.
