    I love this poem. I think about it all the time. To me, depending on the day, i get either 'enjoy your youth while it is yours' or 'all good things come to an end', which to some people are very similar. But its not jsut the messages in Frost's poems, its his writing style - the imagery, emotion, and thought stimulation that one can get from so few words.. (Report) Reply

    this is one of Frost's most beautiful poems where he symbolises the human nature and cycle with the trees and flowers....it takes sometime to really understand this poem...its just so beautiful.. (Report) Reply

    I think this poem is about cherishing your youth and staying young for as long as you can. When you're a child your gold, you're young and innocent. and this is the shortest part of our life, her hardest hue to hold, but as we grow older we start to wither and die, then leaf subsides to leaf, meaning that when we are young we are gold, perfect, and we should try to stay like this for as long as we can (Report) Reply

    I think this poem represents spring and new beginnings that are often easy but get harder then are finnaly crushed. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
