Different archetypes help the reader visually see the beginning which is pure and good and how it an quickly transform into tragedy, where no idyllic situation can last forever. The romance archetype is evident through the use of the World of Innocence (setting) and Idyllic setting (Flora and Fauna). In an idyllic setting, the reader gets a picture of a peaceful, happy and picturesque wonderful world. At the beginning of the poem, Robert Frost states “Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.” This is an example of a beautiful and innocent beginning with no hardships or sorrow. It is an ideal world, with no death.
He never speaks of a god, but realizing that the shell has been there long before man, sheds light on his religious belief. He realizes how different the world would be without the creation of mankind, shows a sense of religion in his writing. Last, Stephens makes his transformation clear in the lines “In the hush of waters was the sound”, “And then I loosed my ear- O it was sweet.” This shows that Stephens realizes his thought of a perfect life, would be far worse than reality. Although in James Wrights’ poem “A Blessing” begins with a description of two Indian ponies in a pasture, grazing just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota. This suggest that the car was pulled over off the road.
Robert Frost wrote Nothing Gold Can Stayin 1923, just five years after World War 1. His original poem contains more ideas about the world ending and his political views. Frost freguently spoke out on international affairs in his sly way. The style of this poem is a narrative, because in this Frost explains that nothing, especially things that are perfect and beautiful, are able to stay that way forever. I think when you first read the title tha tyou may be confused to what it might mean, but as you read the poem you start the realize the meaning to the poem.
The poem “Nothing gold can stay” By Robert Frost is a very short poem but it’s a very realistic and honest poem that everyone can relate to. This poem relates to everyday life because as we age our youth and beauty fades away like how "flowers fade away".

I can relate to this poem because life for me back in the day was so much better than today. I miss the good old days.
And when he tells Pony to have Dally watch a sunset, he doesn’t just mean that literally. He wants Dally to be able to see the beauty in the world, something that he was never able to do.

He appreciated Johnny and Dally, both who helped him through tough times and were there for him until the day they died.

One of the numerous definitions of gold is “something likened to this metal in brightness, preciousness, superiority, etc. - a heart of gold.” This reminds me of one of the core ideas of Robert Frost’s poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay”. Frost writes about losing innocence with knowledge, and childhood innocence can be described with the phrase “a heart of gold.” One important line of the poem is “So Eden sank to grief.” The word “Eden” is used to remind readers of the garden of Eden- a place where the first man and woman were innocent, but separate from the rest of the world. However, with knowledge, this carefree nature was gone. The cycle of knowledge causing people to learn about the harsh realities of the world continues today, and causes fanciful childhood reveries to be lost.
How does the poet use language communicate ideas the reader/audience? Time controls all.

The poet uses a diversity of metaphorical language, powerful imagery and simple diction to create emphasis on the idea that eventually, everything will collapse and we must live life to its value. Metaphorical language plays a vital role throughout the poem.

Permanence in Nature In the poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” Robert Frost examines the idea that everything in nature and life is temporary. This poem analyzes the concept that things in nature are born and fade away so that the next cycle can take it’s place.
