Nothing Gold Can Stay

"Nothing Gold Can Stay"by: Robert Frost

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.

Listen to poet Robert Frost read his original poem, "Nothing Gold Can Stay."

Theme:The theme of this poem is to appreciate the things that are beautiful in life because they do not stay beautiful for long.

Setting:The setting of this poem seems to be nature during autumn

Analysis:This poem is about appreciating what you have in life. Frost says that gold is the hardest hue to hold. I think he means gold like the color of autumn leaves or sunsets. Those colors only last for very short periods of time. We need to appreciate what we have when we have it...the mood of the poem is serious or dramatic.

Third Person Point of View

Personification:Eden sank down to griefMeaning: The Garden of Eden (and/or its members) were disappointed and sad
