Poem Analysis: Nothing Gold Can Stay

129 Words1 Page
The theme of this story to me is that everybody make mistakes, but it's what you learn from them is what matters. I felt like this was a really good theme because it corresponds with the main idea of the poem which is Nothing gold can stay. Figurative language was used threw out the poem in many different forms, but i felt like personifications was most effective because of the amount of it and meaning of the lines. Like in lines 1-4 they all have personification in them but in different ways. This poem can be applied in areas in my life when we are talking about sports because it helps me realize that mistakes are going to happen but if you learn it will help you prosper later.
