Analysis of Nothing Gold Can Stay
  • This simplistic, beautiful poem illustrates the coming of age with plants and nature. When your young your gold. Every thing is new and beautiful. The flower. After a short time, hence “But only so an hour.”, you prepare for adulthood, like when “Leaf subsides to leaf,” as a tree prepares itself for winter. “So Eden sank to grief.” refers to looking back on your past and wishing you were still a kid. “So dawn goes down to day,” is becoming an adult. You can’t stay a kid and “Nothing gold can stay.”

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is goldHer hardest hue to hold.Her early leaf's 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.
