    I think that it, while good, was very short. I wish it was longer, but as Robert Frost says, Nothing Gold can Stay (Report) Reply

    This really affects my heart. The extended metaphor is fabulously expressed through the brilliant vocabulary and organization. (Report) Reply

    This poem is saying, you may love something/someone and adore it. But sometimes they have to go. For a bad reason or a good reason. -Lyly Figueroa (Report) Reply

    Nature's first green is gold,
    Her hardest hue to hold. - early spring - Hope

    Her early leaf's a flower;
    But only so an hour.- Summer -Happiness

    Then leaf subsides to leaf, - Fall- sadness

    So Eden sank to grief, - Winter- Sorrow

    So dawn goes down to day
    Nothing gold can stay. - Life's go on (Report) Reply

    Poems interest me very much, so I would say Robert Frost is my number 1 poet following that is Emily Dickinson. I also agree with Rebecca Weall. (Report) Reply

    All of you are saying that the peom is too plain in the reference to the beauty of nature, but if you actually do your research on the peom it is referring the bible and the garden of Eden. The garden was beautiful until it was messed with. Hence the beauty of nature is at the peak when it's new, untouched by people or weathered away by the elements. (Report) Reply

    I'm afraid I strongly disagree that this poem is banal and trite..it's anything but! It's simple and to the point and as someone that is REALLY tired of seeing writers over complicate issues, this it is very much appreciated and enjoyed. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
