i think that this poem is good as it describes how nothing good can last. i
like it because it conveys the message well and the ddescription used is
extremely good. it was kind of difficult to understand at first but when i
read into it and try to make sense out of it, it is quite touching and

This poem is quite dilightful i think mister Frost is right nothing as
beautiful as nature ever stays take the rain forest for example people want
to cut it down.So nothing that great can really stay forever

i find that this poem is lovely and real. lovely because nature is
described so beautifully like when the sun rays shine on the grass or
leaves are so beautiful like the flower itself.

real because it described the scene whereby sun rays first set touch on
spring's first leaf vividly. it is truly a very touching sight. i could
almost see the scene itself!

but this poem is a bit of negative, in the case where it says 'Nothing gold
can stay'. it emphasizes how beautiful the scene is, but yet in the end it
says that everything will come to an end very quickly. the end stands in
contrast by the vivid and lovely descriptions of the scene.

but that was what makes the poem realistic. i like the poem. it has
feelings and emotions in it.

This poem is found in The Outsiders and i enjoy it very much when we went
through it in the class, we go through it very throughly and i totally find
it meaningful and agreeable. Nothing good can stay can stay, like in the
case of everyone will eventually die. I find it very interesting and really
enjoy it very much.

It is a nice poem and.It reminds me of how all good things to not last
long, all good things would need to go away.This poem is very "real" as it
reflects our real life.It is also very touching to read it

yeah nothing gold can stay... it's simply sad that e innocence of a child
is slowly fading as time pass loh.. but then still everyone HAS to grow up,
gain more knowledge, and dot their best! (for my case, of course, to pass
all my tests!!)

I came across this peom when i was reading THE OUTSIDERS during lit
lesson...I think it is about our life... although it is writen like
describing the nature.... nothing good can really stay put in our life fro
very long.... not all part of our life we will be happy and satisfy... we
will always lost the good thing in our life after some time... I also
agreed with my teacher that this poem tells us about the innocence in
people will dies of.... normally children have innocence in them... which
people says tian zhen in mandrin... however this will not last long... it
will soon end when they enter this world and gain more knowlegde...if
someone were to appreciate little things in their like sunset and
sunrest...we could see many things that are beautiful and unique...
everyday's sunset and sunrise will be different but will always stay

The poem is very creative as it uses alot of description that has hidden
meanings. However it is a very difficult poem for many readers to
understand. I like it.
