Nothing Gold Can Stay Analysis



Author: Poetry of Robert Frost Type: Poetry Views: 14318

New Hampshire1923Nature'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.

I think the poem lends a powerful warning to all of us. Recognize what is really important in life and embrace it. Discard everything else. Appreciate every year, month, day and minute. It is fleeting and we don\'t get a do over. Love your fellow man right now. Don\'t wait until tomorrow because it may never come. Live life today. We spend our lives in the moment. Not in the past or the future.

All good things come to an end. Nature\'s green is the first mark of spring, first sign of life, it is precious, gold. It turns into a beautiful flower representing life blooming, the great times in life. Yet it only lasts a short time. Eden, coming from the story of Adam and Eve, where Eve ate a poisonous apple from the garden and Adam followed, banishing them from the garden, sank to grief. Eden, a beautiful garden, came to an end.

I think Robert Frost meant that it is hard to keep the innocence of youth. Everyone is beautiful as a child, because they are unblemished and uncorrupted by the world.

This poem means that there will be days your mom, sister, and wife, puts out better than others, and that no matter how good they make me orgasm, it will not last forever, so I will only have to wait until next time I bang them.

| Posted on 2012-02-05 | by a guest


.: :.

This poem, to me, is a metaphor for the loss of innocence. The beauty of a young child, who does not have any opinions only lasts \"for an hour.\" Once this child grows up and learns bias and wrong doings, this beauty is lost.

Robert Frost is saying how beuty doesnt last forever

You see...the beauty is in the realization , an enlightenment.
You may not have been a flower or gold , even if you were for a short time.
A leaf subsides to leaf. ah you were a leaf all the time .

All of the ups and downs of life has finally made you into a strong green leaf. A leaf is more stable it lives longer than a flower . There is no despair here. There is only hope and peace here.
\"So dawn goes down to day \"
Where is the despair in daylight... it means the brightness of blue and sunny skies. Nothing gold will stay , we\'ll be formed and reformed to become stronger and stable beings... Cheers

being young is a sign of purity, which doesnt last forever. like a flower, which withers away with time.
purity(being young) is darkened with the day.
and what seemed like eden( beauty) is now just grief(sadness).
i believe that the last two lines make the poem as great as it is, because in a perfect strike of an example for the poem.
he views the sunrise or dawn as gold, because the sky is colored like gold.
but, with in an hour o so.
what looked like gold now just looks plaine.
so, nothing gold can stay.
he proves his point.

i think this poem should show humans life.
I think it means that first everything is nice, beautiful/ life just started.
Then living your life trying to have no problems sometimes to not change/ to leave everything as it is.
Then you maybe found a big chance to find/make a good life.
Maybe just for a short time/ was long seems for you very short.
The sad part \"You died\".
Everybody is sad/ you were wonderful, now you are gone.
so then you get to paradise, were everything is nice and beautiful.
Nothing gold can stay!!!

I think Frost is trying to say that nothing lives forever , I think the poem is trying to say that you gold when your young and try to stay that way. Not to see the horrors of life and to enjoy it as much as you can before it\'s gone.

This poem has a special meaning to me , I have read it twice , once at the funeral for my premature babies and once at my wife\'s funeral when she was only 38. I feel that Frost was reflecting on the way the most precious things in our lives are transitory , be it the innocence of youth or love. For me Gold represents purity of spirit , in the case of youth it represents a soul untouched by the horrors of life in this world and for love it means a soul who was giving and not demanding , who loved life and it\'s many facets and was not embittered by their experiences. Perhaps my interpretation of this poem has been tainted by what I have experienced , but each person who reads this poem can take something different away from it and apply it to their own exprience.

I believe what Frost is trying to say is that nothing can stay the same \" Nature\'s first green is gold\" when he says that I believe he means that the first time the flower or tree sprouts it\'s just beautiful but as the years go on it get\'s old and eventually dies.
ANALYSIS BY: Darienne Walker, age:13

.: :.

The poem means that nothing young can stay and we cannot expect anything to last forever. As said by the poet, the green nature, either tree or leaf, for the first time they are young and fresh, which looks green turns magically into gold. But it is hard for the day to hold the beauty, when dawn arrives. The green leaf which magically turned into gold is now a precious flower. And indeed, it again last for an hour when the day breaks. When the special light of the dawn ends, the leaf will again look like a normal leaf. Thus, the great happiness sinks into intense sorrow. When the dawn ends it will again be day and hence, every thing around us is uncertain and impermanent.

\"Nothing gold can stay\" is a very powerful poem. it means that nothing young can stay. it also means that you can\'t expect anything to last forever. the sunset don\'t last all day at some point it has to end so another one can begin.

gold stands for innocence when you grow up, you have not yet learned all of the bad things. When you do, you learn all the bad habits. Recommended: The Outsiders by Susan Eliott Hinton

.: :.

This poem is about youth and aging. Youth is gold. It cannot be expected to last forever. The dawn of a new day - the dawn of a new life is precious yet short lived. You cannot capture youth, so enjoy it while it lasts. Enjoy each new thing as it comes and do not try to hold on to it for it cannot stay.

it means that all pure things fall away in the end, just as edan was pure but eve sinned and eden was lost forever and nothing beutiful can last forever thats why we must cherish it and not abuse it

Tis true, nothing gold can stay. So we must cherish all things gold while we still have them. Frost makes a very sentimental point in this poem.

Nature\'s first Green is Gold. This is not a representation of sunrise causing green to look gold. Frost loved & understood nature. He observed that prior to certain plant & tree leaves becoming green, they are, in fact, yellow in color. It\'s really not as deep as some poetry reviewers often try to make it. Frost\'s genius lived in his simplistic natural style. However, I believe that the overall tone & meaning of his Piemonte is incredibly spiritual & significant. Thanks fir listening. Paul

* Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.
This is the special gold light of the early sunrise. The first light on the first green leaf it touches turns it magically gold. The dawn doesn\'t last all day and will end. We\'re at the start of a magnificent event and he\'s telling us about the end.
* Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour.
The green leaf magically turned gold is now a precious flower!
And again he reminds us. The dawn does indeed last an hour. Thank you.
* Then leaf subsides to leaf.
And even more about the end. When the special light of the dawn ends, the leaf will again look like a leaf. (But we\'re not at the end!) \"Subsides\" means \"flower\" ranks higher than \"leaf\" in the poets value system.
* So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day.
Just how low does the leaf rank?
It was the ever-so-despicable leaf that got us banished forever from Paradise. That\'s how low. Does this raise the value of the flower? Only for this very funny poet.
When the dawn ends it will again be day and that will be the end of the special golden light. Believe it, the end will come. But the sun rises to day not goes down. How silly. Oh, this the poets value system again where \"Dawn\" ranks higher than \"day\". It\'s a traversal down to day in his value system.
* Nothing gold can stay.
Yes, we know the poet feels terrible about the leaf not looking like a beautiful flower. It seems he spent so much time telling us of the end and proving his value system how could he enjoy it? But to neurotically and fatalistically generalize nothing gold will ever last is just wrong. There are plenty of gold things that will be around much longer than any of us and the dawn never ends. It just moves West constantly. How very funny he is.

Basically Robert Frost is telling you to enjoy what is \"gold\". In this case, life is gold. Nature\'s first green refers to childhood. This poem was written about 10 years after Frost\'s child died 3 days after birth

Nothing Gold can Stay
(an easier to read analysis)
Robert Frost:New Hampshire 1923
Nature\'s first green is gold,
---Dawn is Natures first.
---Dawn\'s first light on a leaf turns it gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
---The sun only has that effect
---at the short lived dawn.
Her early leaf\'s a flower;
---Turning the leaf magically gold
---at first dawn makes it into a flower
But only so an hour.
---The dawn only lasts an hour
---It *is* short lived
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
---When dawn is over,
---the leaf will again look like a leaf
---(leaf or flower? Flower!)
So Eden sank to grief,
---because of the despicable leaf ...
---they were cast out of Eden!
---(an extreme, neurotic reaction?)
---(very, very funny)
So dawn goes down to day
---The dawn has now become day
---(and the leaf is again a leaf)
Nothing gold can stay
---neurotic generalization to everything
---he was so taken with the dawn
---and it\'s effects and so-let-
---down when it became day
---what a wit
---he\'s better than Woody Allen

I believe he is saying that love can never last. The leaves on the trees are your feelings, and when they become flowers your love blooms. But in Frost\'s eyes there is really no ever lasting love. Eventually things always go sour. Of course, this can be put and pulled in many different directions, but that was my take on it. I do believe love lasts, however I also believe that Frost makes an excellent point. I believe this because he could be talking about young love. Young love is exactly like a young flower, just bloomed and looking at something so entirely new. When this flower or person experiences something this incredible for the first time they don’t know how to handle it and therefore it doesn’t last. A sad yet exciting and beautiful poem it is.
