“Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost

TP-CASTT


Title: Nothing can stay forever, nothing good ever lasts, money doesn’t grow on trees

T = Title (before we read)


Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leafs a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay.

Read the poem


  • Nature's first green is gold,

    = nature in spring gives the brightest green

  • Her hardest hue to hold.

    = this green doesn’t stay green for long

  • Her early leafs a flower;

    = spring gives us flowers first

  • But only so an hour.

    = but not for very long

P = Paraphrase (literal meaning)


  • Then leaf subsides to leaf.

    = then leaves merely stay leaves

  • So Eden sank to grief,

    = just like Eden was overcome with sadness

  • So dawn goes down to day.

    = just like the sunrise merely becomes a day

  • Nothing gold can stay.

    = nothing amazing can last

Paraphrase, cont’d.

3. “So…” – shows effect

Shifts (how the poem changes)


“Nothing Gold Can Stay” – meaning is… seasons changing, beauty/time changes form, beauty can’t stay forever, seasons change just like peoples’ idea of beauty

Title (interpret)


What the poem might be about…

Be thankful for what you have; it won’t last long.

Some moments in our lives have beauty, while others are dull.

Like the seasons, beauty will come and go.

  • II. Body Paragraph:

    Concrete Detail #1: “life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly”

    Commentary 1:The comparison of a life and a bird unable to fly creates the idea that if we do not remember our dreams, then our lives will cease to become what we want them to become.

    Commentary 2: This metaphor creates a sense of urgency for the reader in remembering his/her own dreams, and not forgetting what he/she wants to become.
