Robert Frost does such a great job in describing that the birds are almost chirping in the image. Where the image can move all because of the description of nature in Nothing Gold Can Stay. Though this poem is made up of many metaphors and examples of personification, it does not use much figurative language like Onematopeia and alliteration. Robert Frost reading his poem is a big help to finding the tone and the feel of the poem that the author was trying to display. Natures first bud is precious and it’s conveying birth and ease because once nature blooms to that bright color it dies slowly.
Edward Estlin Cummings is one of the most famous American poets of the 20th century. He uses words to “point to a reality outside themselves” and on the contrary claims “the only reality is language itself” . He is well known for his disregard of traditional poetic expression, and tendency to invent words. The poem Love is more thicker than forget has 16 lines, which are separated into 4 stanzas. It has an iambic metre and the rhyme scheme is a cross rhyme throughout the poem.
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.
One of the themes is Nature, although the turning from young to old is a theme as well. In the poem Nothing Gold Can Stay the rhyme scheme is A,A,B,B in both stanzas. It is this way because the words that rhyme are; gold and hold, flower and hour, leaf and greif, and day and stay. In Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost there are lots of senses the poet uses. He uses sight to make the reader see the green and flowers and the sun rising.
Authors around the world have used symbols in their works to reveal a deeper hidden meaning. One of Hawthorne’s most famous short stories “Young Goodman Brown” uses symbols such as pink ribbons, a dark forest, and a serpentine staff to contribute to his overall meaning that life is full of temptations that ultimately lead men into sin and away from God. All throughout the story, Goodman Brown’s wife Faith wears pink ribbons on her cap. The first significance of this description is the color. Pink is typically associated with babies and young girls, which Hawthorne tries to highlight in his description of Faith.
In Frost’s poem Nothing Gold Can Stay, he describes the changing of nature and possibly referring to a person event in his own life. Through paradox, imagery, and synecdoche, he supports a message that his life is changing to beauty. Overall, the mood of the poem is joyous and peaceful. To show Frost’s message, he uses several paradoxes in his poem. One of which is the first line of the poem, “Nature’s first green is gold”.
Is Love Cliché or Perfect? Is love a cliche or simply great, is it something to dread or a once in a lifetime find? “One Perfect Rose” by Dorothy Parker and “How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning state different viewpoints on the topic of love. From the rhyming schemes to the meter as well as the meaning behind the poems they are similar as well as different.
He has no inhibition to violate the usually accepted norms. However, the violation is resorted to by the poet, only to create an extraordinary poetic effect. The poem “Hour” by Christian Hawkey is subjected to a syntactic analysis to highlight some syntactical devices employed by the poet that would enable us to discover and appreciate the poem.

“Poetry is ordinary language raised to the Nth power. Poetry is bonded with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words,”(Paul Engle). Poetry covers all spectrums of life, whether it encompasses morality, love, death, or finding ones true self. When reading poetry one may stumble across pure brilliance, words so powerful they have the ability challenge the mind. Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman have that such gift, and are nothing short of illustrious.
