This is my favorite poem of all time! It's also in my fav book of all time,
"The Outsiders". It's true what Johnny said in the book. He said that the
poem meant that you're gold when you're born, but it doesn't last long. I
can never get enough of all the outsiders. I always picture myself as
Ponyboy. I cry everytime I read the book and see the movie!

I think that the poem is so well written, and it is so inspirational, is
just saying that "EVERY ONE IS GOLD WHEN THEY ARE BORN." "BUT JUST LIKE
THE TITLE, IT IS THE TRUTH, NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY."

this poem brings me to tears. i love it so much though,and it is so
beautiful. i respect what robert frost meant by it. i have been watching
the outsiders since i was about 3 or 4 yrs. old. i used to watch it every
single day in my life, but now only every once in awhile. anyhoo i just
got what the poem really meant about 5 yrs. ago when i was nine yrs old.and
i love it. it is the most beautiful poem i have ever read. thank u robert
frost for putting things in an amazing perspective.

I also read The Outsiders and it not only relates to that but i also found
that it can be portrayed as the strength of the family. The Curtis Family
was a family of gold and it was hard to stay gold and strong but they
overcame. It is a truly awesome use of poetry in a novel. I give it three
thumbs up!

Hey bird, I read the outsiders when I was in seventh grade. If you pay
attention, johnny says that it means that when you are a kid, you're gold.
Eveyrthing is new. Like the way Ponyboy digs sun sets, that's gold.

This poem is one of my old favorites. I read it in 8th grade like everyone
else (didn't know so many people read the outsiders in 8th grade too) This
poem to me means how in nature everything is so pure and peaceful but only
at dawn. Once day set's in everything is ruined. Just like in this world;
when you are born your are pure and honest, but once you grow up you become
"evil" you lose your inocence~
