Nothing Gold Can Stay

When I first read this poem over I immediately thought it was about fall turning into winter because of imagery to flowers and leaves.
Then I began thinking about the sunrise and sunset, how they only lasted a short amount of time. However, as I read on it seemed to have a deep meaning as to say that everything good comes to an end, a rather pessimistic view on life,

"So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day,
Nothing gold can stay."
