    This poem was so bad my eyeballs fell out and the dog started to cry and I dropped kicked the cat over the fence (Report) Reply

    How do you know where the cat landed if your eyeballs dropped out?

    It's barnacle; and drop-kicked.

    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 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
