Nothing Gold Can Stay

I came across this wonderful poem way back in high school, about 11 years ago. It's really touching and full of meaning that since then, I have these words and phrases kept in my mind. Knowing of this poem helped me a lot in coping up with my life because it talks of the reality that nothing in this world stays. So everytime I lose something or someone really important to me, I just think of this poem, and somehow, I'll be more or less fine. Nature's first green is gold Her hardest hue to hold Her early leaf's a flower But only so an hour Then leaf subsides to leaf So Eden sank to grief So dawn goes down to day Nothing gold can stay. Thank you Mr. Frost.... What about you? What do you think of this poem?

That's a beautiful poem. I can see why it is memorable for you. Was that by Robert Frost?

it personifies life. it compared life to a tree, just like a tree we will grow old and soon die and lost our lives. we don't live eternal life here on earth, it's only in heaven.
