Exploring the Meaning of Words Together



Watch for the meaning of each word, then its meaning as it relates to the poem. What is the value of gold...and spring?

Nothing Gold Can Stay              

- 1874-1963
Nature’s first green is gold,

Her 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.
