Nothing Gold Can Stay

Rating: 4.3
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.

Gold's definition is it lasts for endless times, even centuries will pass, the gold is still there, but Robert Frost means here Not one thing lasts, even gold. He uses metaphors here, crystal clear!

Happiness we get here is temporary. Greif we get here is also temporary. Everything goes away. Because flower wilts after few hours of blooming and leaf too wilts after few days or months. We face changing world at each time.

Nothing is permanent in this world. Everything changes as per time. Nature brings seasonal flow. Nature's power we feel better and nature's gold is green. Gold turns into dust as per time but nature revives its greenness gradually.

Then leaf subsides to leaf, So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day Nothing gold can stay. Worthlessness of all that is material. tony
