"Nothing Gold can Stay" by Robert Frost has a lot to say. True, Frost talks
about the little pleasures in life but he also talks about us getting ahead
of ourselves. Moving onto new things the second they come along. He says,
"Her early leaf's a flower;" then two stanzas down says, "Then leaf
subsides to leaf". A leaf at first bloom is everything. It's gold. As soon
as the flowers bud the leaf is just a leaf. This kind of reminds me of
technology in our days. A new computer or digital camera comes out...a year
or so later it's considered old school. Frost attempts to remind us that
those things that may seem old are still imortant. Don't forget to stop and
appreciate them.

Things donít last in this world. We should value the things that matter to
us and cherish it. In this poem the flower symbolizes the beauty around us,
like our family and friends. We should remember that there will be a time
that all the things we value will cease and no longer will be around us. In
conclusion let us be someone who values time for our family and friends.

This poem has a lot of ruth to it. I feel that it is trying to protray
that all things should not be taken for granted. Not everything is going
to stay, so we should enjoy them while we can. We should embass the small
little pleasures that come nad go through life.

The poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay", by Robert Frost, is very true. This poem
shows you how everything in this life, even life itself comes to an end. I
think this can symbolize a road on life; on how a little decision can
simply change your whole life. Sometime we as teenagers, take the wrong
path but that is just life. You live and you learn.

This poem is written by Robert Frost. Robert Frost relates it to everyday
life with humans, even though it is written about a flower. He states that
nothing gold can stay, which is true nothing lasts forever. That's why you
have to cherish every moment that you have on this earth whether it is with
someone you love or with your friends. You have appreciate everything you
have and every second that you have. This reminded me of Gatsby from The
Great Gatsby, he tried everything that he could just to be with Daisy even
though it might just be for just an hour.

This poem by Robert Frost is a well written piece of literature that
illustrates how a flower and beauty is valuable but won't last forever. Its
short but straight forward. It also really touches your heart and soul with
his soft rhyme scheme. You couldn't ask for a better poem.I give this poem
four stars.

This poem reminds us that the wonderful, youthful elements of our lives
last only for a short time. While we have them, they are golden.
Therefore, we must appreciate what we've been given and see the beauty
before us each day, knowing it will not last forever. Our lives as human
beings are also short-lived in the overall scheme of things...but that's
okay...it's the way life is.

I belive that this poem means to value the same treasures in life. For the
little gifts do not last forever, so we should cherish them.

This peom symbolizes how alot of people feel and deal with life.Most people
only worry about their vauables, and not about family and friends. We need
to stop and think about what really important in life. Frost uses gold to
show the realtionship, because its rare and hard to find. Just like how the
most important things in life are to find.He know how to relate his work to
everyday problems we all are facing.

This was a good poem. It reminded me of The Great Gatsby because Gatsby
thought that with money he could have everything but he didnt because he
didnt have Daisy the one he truly loved. Also Gatsby and Daisy love didnt
last so long becuase she got married to Tom. One thing everyone should know
is that money doesnt buy happiness not even with all the money in this
