In nothin gold can stay, it says"natures first green is gold."This line
means to me thatpeople should appreciate what they have when they are
young. the second line says"Her hardest hue to hold." This line means to me
that it is hard to hold on to the most precious things. In the third line
it says"Her early leaf's a flower." this line means to me that the earliest
things are the most beautiful. The line that says"So dawn goes down to
day." This means to me that the dark night will go to day, which means the
worst things can change into something good. the last line says"Nothing
gold can stay." This line means to me that good things can stay, but people
change so they don't think it is there.

In the poem nothing gold can stay, I think it is about
our lives. As the sun rises or as we get older we see the reality of life
more clearly, and the true color of things, and not the gold we saw as
young people. You will be old for a long time, and the sun will be shining
on the earth the whole day. The sunrise represents the youth of our
lives.

I think the poem nothing gold can stay is wrong and anything gold can stay
as long as you want it to stay and can make it stay.I also think that
whatever changes in your life is you and not always the world.

The poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost in my opinion means when
spring comes all the flowers sprout. Grass turns green. When winter comes
all the flowers go away.In life you find and meet many new things and
people. You may have been friends with some and slowly you stop writing to
each other. You may have a favorite shirt,but it fades in the wash and is
not good any more. Good things come and go. Nothing can stay forever.
Eventually you either stop liking them or it leaves.

I would interpret nothing gold can stay as nothing good can stay.For
example life can't stay with you when you die life leaves you it is still
with others ,but not you.If you take the poem don't go gently into that
good night it takes the opposite meaning ,and implies that nothing bad can
stay either.

The poem nothing gold can stay by robert frost from outsiders means that
nothing gold can stay but it can stay and it does. People change not the
gold. An example would be like the sunset may seem gold and it does stay
people just change and dont think its gold anymore so it doesnt stay.

I think this poem is about how the things that are precious to you are
worth working for and once you have them to keep working because if you
dont you might lose them.

I think that Nothing Gold Can Stay means that nothing will always be
good.It may seem this it is good but it will not always be. Nothing will
always be the same like you might lose interest in things, like a sunset
you might not like it but when you get older you might start to like them
or it may be the other way around.

To me this peom means that everything can stay even gold.A flower dead or
alive, black or colorful it will stay.Things will stay for more than an
hourand more than two.When the sun goes down at night it means to me that
it is a sign of peace,right after the sun goes down the moon arises to
fulfill another day of living

I think Robert Frost meant that people change and things change. Sometimes
for better, sometimes for worse. But if you think about it, people, things,
and life change. Change is inevitable, for better or worse.
