The golden beams of the sunrise that shine over nature turn into the the generic rays that reveal earth’s natural colors. The poem is concluded by stating the main theme of the poem which is, “Nothing gold can stay” (8). The idea that good things will not last causes moments and memories to be more cherished and appreciated. The underlying metaphor between nature and the human experience causes the reader to stop, if it is only while reading the poem, and think about the “good times” they have had or to slow down and consider that the best time of their life may be happening at that exact moment. In this poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” Robert Frost has come to the realization that life is short, and
The characters of Animal Farm are rather flat, and show no development or change throughout the book. Whereas in Anthem, growth is seen in main characters such as Equality 7-2521. In the beginning, Equality 7-2521 feels like he is missing something in life, but does not now what. By the end, he has fallen in love with the Golden One and realized the truth about his society. Also, at the end of the book he discovers the word ‘I’ which he had never used previously in his life.
“Nothing Gold Can Stay” I really savor reading old books because they remind me of my grandparent’s childhood stories. My grandparents always reminded me of how innocent they were back then, but how life had twisted throughout the years, and their innocence faded away. In the Outsiders, an old book written by S.E. Hinton, there is a quote that says: “Nothing gold can stay”.

Fleeting sunsets, and the innocence of youth will not last very long, but that gives us more reason to cherish them while they do. Though all good things must come to an end, as Frost writes, a sincere appreciation for the impermanence of what is “gold” ultimately develops
The title of the poem develops the theme of innocence and youth. “But only so an hour,” the author included this quote in the poem to show that nothing lasts forever. Which means that you should appreciate the things you get or have while it lasts. The title develops the theme of innocence and youth by saying how nothing lasts forever like your innocence and youth doesn’t last forever. Setting and Imagery develops the theme of innocence and youth as well.

Many young readers may say The Odyssey is a pointless, outdated poem that has no meaning or worth. However, this very aged classic written by Homer still holds great value in today’s society. Even though the world has progressed economically and technologically since ancient Greek times, the morals and values taught in The Odyssey are just as effective for people of current times. The poem appeals to people of all ages and teaches important lessons that can be used throughout life. The Odyssey teaches readers the lessons of determination and hospitality, both of which are valued in current times.
One’s pretty lively when ruined,” (20). ‘Melia uses a monotone voice throughout the poem. Her tone symbolizes that even though she seems to have a good life, her spirit no longer exists. Losing her purity and dignity has caused her to lose her happiness in a new world full of luxury. The shifting tone throughout the poem shows that a wealthy life does not always lead to happiness, but true happiness comes from having a free spirit, which cannot be
How beautiful and peaceful it is to just stop and listen for a moment so there is understanding. I honestly enjoyed this poem a lot. At first I didn't really understand what I was doing, but I broke it down in my own words and I was able to grasp it. This poem gave me a peaceful heart as I was trying to brake it down to what it was trying to get me to understand. My heart was calm and with happiness and a little bit of sadness also.
