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. =)

hmmm... knew this poem from the outsiders. Did some research on it cuz mrs
lum asked our grp to.A very 'true' poem cuz in reality, beauthing things
realli do not last long. It somehow remines us to treasure these precious
things before they are gone.
