The Poem that nothing good can stay. Innocence and perfection never last.
"Nature's first green is gold," This is sunrise. "Her hardest hue to hold."
Sunrise is the hardest to keep the same."Her Early leaf's a flower" Instead
of the leaf and then the flower, with the day, the flower (dawn/pretty
part)comes first. "But only so an hour." Dawn only lasts about an hour.
"Then leaf subsides to leaf" As the sun rises, the beauty sinks and the
'flower' becomes a 'leaf'."So Eden sank to grief," Here Frost is talking of
the Garden of Eden. "So dawn goes down to day." Dawn is prettier than day.
"Nothing gold can stay." Nothing good can stay.

Nothing Gold can stay is one of Robert Frost's classic. It uses nature to
show how things that are really precious can stay. It uses the themes
constant change, transition and nothing gold can stay.

My take on nothing gold can stay is That the things that are really
satisfying only seem to slip through your fingers like sands through an
hour glass. The fruit of your labor that you toil for under the sun only
serves to benefit another. The one you choose to give your heart to Loves
another. True Happiness who can find for nothing gold can stay.

something, your right.

I think that Robert Frost wrote this poem at the time he was thinking about
this. So this poem can mean whatever it wants to different people.

the poem realli tells us to cherish every moment of our life. it also tells
us that time is precious and when we gain more knowledge and becomes more
mature, we would lose our purity and innocence.it wants the readers
treasure childhood. S.E.Hinton chose the right poem as it really tells how
ponyboy and johnny loses their innocence. Robert Frost as well as
S.E.Hinton rocks.
