It is a nice poem with deep meaning. i did not quite get the meaning till
we did the poem analysis. It is about having cherish what we have as
nothing lasts forever

I came aceross this poem wheni was reading my lit novel the ountsiders and
i thought about this poem and found it very interesting
basically it is just saying that all good things must come to an end... no
matter how hard you try to hold on these things.. everyone ages and
innocence will always be affected by evil... it's the way things are in
this competitive world ..this poem also shows how quickly good things and
chances fade awayand about the cycle of life and death

well the poem is realli nice... great descriptions & emphasis that nothing
good in the world last forever. But if every precious thing lasts forever,
nobody will noe how to cherish. hah.
The Outsiders also very nice.. budden i dun see how the story links to
Nothing good lasts forever.. maybe i'll think harder.. hmm..
anyway rock on!!(:

when i first read this poem, i find that it is difficult and i don't
understand any part of it. but as i read slower, i understood the meanings
and find that it is a very nice poem about life. it tells me alot about
being innocent and everything. nothing gold can stay reminds me that good
things will eventually show their bad side. so we must cherish their good
side before it turns bad.

i find that this poem is very meaningful.although it has a profound
meaning, the main idea is still very easy to get-nothing good can ever
stay. this poem shows how when we were young, we have this innocence in us.
we tend to see things from a different way compared to an adult. we tend to
be amazed by every little thing we see. but for an adult, they will just be
like: ok, a sunset. nothing to it. and just let the beautiful sunset pass.

This poem is beautiful. The words used are simple, yet it carries so much
meaning in it. It talks of the innocence we had when we were young, but we
soon lose it as we grow up. So true in real life. 'Nothing gold can stay',
so we must cherish the little things around us. ;)
