“Nothing Gold Can Stay” By Robert Frost Review

This poem explores the idea that nothing good or precious can last forever by using nature and The Garden of Eden as metaphors for cycles of life and death and the loss of innocence.

This poem is a 8 line poem written by no other than Robert Frost the master of poems. There is only one guy who writes better poems than Edgar Allan Poe and it is Robert Frost.

The entire uses throughout the entire poem the imagery of sunrise’s impact on Nature. Just as a metaphor for life and the loss of beauty and innocence as time goes by. And I truly loved that. 

The writing style is hard to review in poems because they are short and poems have a specific tactic they are written in. But if we compare the writing style with in this poem with other poems than we will see that the writing style here was amazing and extremely good.

This poem sort of connects the dots between the concept of Experience in every aspect of its being. And the fact that this poem explains the mysterious and even fantastic transformation which happened within the hour that sunrises come and go really makes this poem very unique and good.

And the mood which this poem has really makes you think about these simple moments like seeing sunrise or sunset and how fast they actually pass. 

This poem has also a very good underlying message in it which you realise after you have read the poem and thought about it for a while. 

This poem gets 5 / 5
