I think this poem is very interesting and really bring out the real
meaning. Although it is tough to interpret it, it really excites me when i
know the meaning of it. I had learned a lot from this poem. The Outsiders
is a good book and I think it is suitable to place such a good poem in it.
After my teacher explains the meaning to us, I further understand why
Robert Frost decided to write this poem. =)

hmmm... knew this poem from the outsiders. Did some research on it cuz mrs
lum asked our grp to.A very 'true' poem cuz in reality, beauthing things
realli do not last long. It somehow remines us to treasure these precious
things before they are gone.

the theme of this poem is very interesting.it uses the example of adam and
eve eating the forbidden apple of the special tree in eden.the poem clearly
shows what it wants to say that is:nothing good can stay forever,so
treasure what you have now,do not regret only when u lose it.

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.
