“Nothing Gold Can Stay” Most people have heard the saying, “All good things must come to an end.” Robert Frost explores this idea in his poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay.” This poem, written in the 1920s, which began as a time of economic prosperity and ended with a time of economic depression, uses gold as a metaphor to explain the idea, nothing “good” will last.

Guenevere appears to be perfect, but she caused Morgan Le Fay to be so angry with her that Le Fay went to great lengths to try to kill her.
