This Poem is from "the Outsiders" I'm reading it in Class as which i'm a
7th grader, I'm to the part where Johnny... But this poem is a great fact,
nothing could ever stay the way it used to for long...*sigh* that's a good
thing!

I've heard of Robert Frost, but I've never heard this poem until I was
watching a "Baby Einstein" dvd. I fell in love with it and have sense
memorized it.

Great analogy of the poem. You have a very deep look at the poem and the
hidden meanings of the words.

I have read The Outsiders book 6 times and it is truly amazing. When I saw
the poem for the first time, I didn't quite know what it meant, just like
Ponyboy. When I saw the movie I began to realize exactly what Robert Frost
meant. He meant exactly what Johnny said in the note. That we are gold
when we are kids and everything seems new. Like the way Ponyboy digs
sunsets. Thats what Johnny said is gold. he also said that he should keep
it that way cause its a good way to be. At the realization of this poem I
cried knowing that kids like the outsiders are wonderful kids but just
unfortunate to have that type of life. This is a very good example for
kids in their teenage years like me.

I love this poem! It reminds me that anyhting that is good and true can not
stay in one place forever, but that it will be back some day, just not for
a while!

I love this poem like every one said. I read this poem in the book "OUT
SIDERS". Its a good book to read. the poem discribes how the most beautiful
features of nature are the shortest lived. This poem applies to nature as
can be seen in the lines, but also to life in general. It describes the
ups and downs in life pretty well. Everything changes and you can't do
anthing to change it. Learn to live when your life change!!!

I also came acroos this poem in the Outsiders, and I must admit, I was
quite charmed by the truth being told in a form of utter simplicity.

"Nothing Gold can stay" everyone wants to have or be apart of something
great. Then when you finally get what you want you are dellusioned to
beliving it is yours forver. But nothing is ever truly yours- all life
belongs to god. You have to be thankful for everytihng you have because it
can be taken away at any moment. Live life like it is your last day on this
earth because something great won't last a life times"Nothing Gold can
stay"

The first time i came across this poem was in high school. the teacher gave
us this book to read called the Outsiders. really was not much into the
book until she made me do a complex report on it. after that i was totally
wowed! the poem came into nice contex with the book...i was about 14 and
while growing up and loosing my innocence and my youth the poem made more
and more sence to me. i realized that my innocence is my 'gold' and i will
loose it,it is an enevatable change. im 21 now still changeing and still
looking to my poem to ashure myself that the change is ok.
the second time i came accross this poem was in a garfield cartoon, but
i was proud i know it would have reached someone else.
