Nothing Gold can Stay

| | Comments (3)
In Robert Frost's "Nothing Gold Can Stay" I believe he is talking about how nothing in this world stays perfect forever. The first two lines of this poem, "Nature's first green is gold, / Her hardest hue to hold." describe that even for nature it is hard to last forever. It also describes how we should not take everything for granted and should appreciate everything around us before it is gone.


I'm glad to see the blogging is working out for you. Good!

I enjoyed this reading as well. It also made me think about how yes, leaves change and they can't stay green forever. However, every spring they start anew. There is almost hidden hope in this poem that good things must end, but there will be other good things after the winter is over.

I agree that this poem is about making the most out of what you have before it is gone. While nothing lasts "forever" I believe things can last as long as my forever. What I mean is throughout my life, seeing as there are trees that far outlive me. I feel that gold is "the hardest hue to hold", but that it can be maintained.
