Suicide Died in 1963 Buckinghamshire Why so Influential? Nothing Gold Can Stay 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.
Techniques used:
Rhyme Scheme( a,a,b,b,c,c,d,d)
Internal Rhyme Scheme

Important Literary elements:
Figurative Language

Nature’s first hue is gold,
although nothing gold can stay for
too long. Bliss is not eternal.

Literal meaning:
Good things eventually fade away,
so enjoy them while you can.

Philosophical meaning:
Treasure the things you love because
they won’t always be there. Works Cited The Poetry of Robert Frost edited by Edward Connery Lathem.

Reprinted by permission of Henry Holt and Company, LLC. The Road Not Taken Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. Influences Felt Around the World Writing Techniques:
