Library     Nothing Gold Can Stay     Parent Guide

by Robert Frost


Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost.

Robert Frost (1874-1963) was one of the most popular and critically respected American poets in history. His poems frequently employ rural scenes from the New England countryside. “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” published in 1923, uses nature to describe aging and the inevitable course of time.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Growing Up and Man vs. Nature as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"Why should we value our youth?" and "How do we view nature?"
