I read this poem from THE OUTSIDERS. it is a wonderful book. This poem
tells me that nothing precious can stay. Even if we try our best to keep
it, it will still be gone. Juz like Adam and Eve, they lost their innocence
when they ate the apple from the tree. I think that this poem is extremely
true as even if we want to keep the precious moments in one, how can it be
done? Nothing can be done to it. It will be in our memories, some may say,
but will memories stay forever, they may, but will you remmeber them? No
one knows. So, the precious moments were lost.

THis is one of the poems i came across while reading The Outsiders, which
is one of my favourite book. This poem "Nothing gold can stay", reminds me
of something i love and is precious to me but i cannot keep it for long. I
like this poem a ;lot, not only does it it portraits something that happens
to everyone in life, which unable to grasp on to something they love for
long, this poem is also very meaningful and has lots of meanings in it. I
strongly encourage others to read this poem...

i think that this poem is very 'not' superficial as if u take a closer look
and take time to understand the poem and with the help of our ppl comment
or understanding of the poem, it give u a sense that not every thing is the
same under every ppl's eyes and also i think that the poem really shows
that we must chirish each and everyone in our life (even ppl that we think
we hate think they r irrtating or just don't like his/her face) as nothing
'gold' can stay e.g. friendship etc. and it is also the hardest hue to hold
meaning that like friendship it is very difficult to substain as friends
will somehow quarrel with 1 another sometime over trival matter and we need
to 'yi ren rang yi bu' so that we won't quarral over the slightest thing.

I think this poem by Robert Frost in the "The Outsiders" is a very
meaningful poem.Good things can't stay for long and we must cherish
everything around us in our life before it is gone.

It is a very touching poem.It reminds me to cherish the things around me
and not take them for granted.We must learn to appreciate the nature's
first. Nothing good can stay for long, we must live to our fullest and not
waste our life.

It is a nice poem it my first time getting to know it in the book "The
Outsiders". It was good and it reminded me the sad point that all good
things would need to go away...all in all the poem is so"real" as it
reflects our real life...

i think the poem was really well-written illustrating that nothing great n
valuable last long like a sunrise although beautiful is only for a while.
emphasizing that Nothing precious (to one or anything) can stay longg..
