This poem seems to symbolize the natural fact that gold cannot last. I like
to think that Frost was telling the reader to never depend on the physical
"gold" things. They will not be there forever. However, in the poem the
beauty of the season, or things like friendships for example(sybolically
speaking), is a constant theme. In this light, I feel this poem should be
interpreted by saying that physical "gold", or other such things, can never
last, though the feeling and beauty of it can stay forever.

To say that NOTHING lasts forever is a generalization and I don't think
Frost meant it this way.

This poem is absolutely true. It means a lot to me. I am 15 years old and
I have wrote many poems, a book, and a play. I love to write poetry but I
don't think I am any good. I love the book Gone With The Wind. This poem
reminds me of it every time I see it.
May God Bless richly always,

This poem is really true, regardless of the situation "nothing gold can
stay" wheather it be beauty or feelings toward someone, you can love
someone forever, but the first feelings wont ever stay the same.

this is the name of a New Found Glory Album too.

at the beginning of the 1st song there is a quote before the music begins.

"It's like the mist that's so pretty you know, all gold and silver. Too bad
it can't stay that way all the time. Nothing gold can stay."
