This poem is great.It reflects on how all good things need to come to an
end.For example the sunrise will never stay at the same position for the
rest of the day and Adam Eve will never be able to return to the garden of
Eden anymore.Just like our innocence and youth,we can never stay young and
innocent all our life.As time passes,we would all grow old and lose the
innocent we use to have when we just a child.Therefore,it is best that we
cherish all the time we have with our family and friends,so as to not
regrett about what we did to them or what we have not done for them.

This poem is very touching. It describes the cycle of life, and how
everything will perish no matter how beautiful or precious it is. It
relates to how Pony and Johnny lose their innocence, and I feel it is
telling us that we should treasure our youth and make full use of it.

This is a good poem decribing how one's precious things, one's youth,
innocence etc.It shows how quickly good things and chances fade away.It is
a good poem worth to read as it describes the cycle of life how everything
in the world comes and goes...

This poem is quite well-written. It expresses how quickly good things and
chances fade away. It is impossible for all good things to stay forever.
There definitely will be one day that they will slip away. Therefore, we
should cherish and grasp hold of any chances we have, so that we will not
regret when they are gone.

This is a marvellous poem decribing how one's precious things, namely one's
youth, innocence etc, can never be permanent and will corrode, just like
Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. meaningful poem. =)

Nothing Gold can stay is beautifully articulated. It sets ones mind to
think about the meaningful phrases.Nature's first green is gold.There is
always something that is for first time.Everything that is beautiful fades
away. Nothing can last forever. But as a Christian, there is something that
will last forevr. it is the love of God and his Word. This poem basically
describes how the boys from the Outsiders have lost their innocence. Robert
Frost's Poems are certainly worth reading.;)

I feel that this poem is very meaningful. It means that nothing gold or
beautiful can stay or last forever. Thus, we must treasure all the 'golden'
things in life while we still have them as they will not be there forever.

I think this poem is very interesting and really bring out the real
meaning. Although it is tough to interpret it, it really excites me when i
know the meaning of it. I had learned a lot from this poem. The Outsiders
is a good book and I think it is suitable to place such a good poem in it.
After my teacher explains the meaning to us, I further understand why
Robert Frost decided to write this poem. =)
