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.

i think the poem has some meaning for all to live while you have life and
make the best of it while you can.

i think this poem is trying to tell us that enjoy your life while you can.
i agree that nothing gold can stay,it might last a long,long time but at
the end your going to lose whatever that you might have. and always
remember that everyone is going to die oneday so enjoy life while you can.

When i first acquired this book, i thought it wouldnt be one of my
favorites. And i guess i was wrong. The Outsiders, is a really exciting
book, filled with both hatred and love, and it had a very good ending. The
poem of Robert Frost, was also one of the classic poems that took place in
the story. I really liked the poem, at first it did not make sense to me,
but later i found out the real meaning. My favorite character is Dally,
because even if he isnt the "greatest guy", he, well i think is most like
me from all the characters. I had alot of fun reading S.E Hintons books, if
u like the outsiders then u must read THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW, by
S.E.Hinton. It is really good. Well The Outsiders, was a book that has all
my memories carried within each and every page. Well, if you havent read
it, go, because this is one book you would never want to miss out on.

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.
