Transcript of Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost

By Robert Frost "Nothing Gold Can Stay" Inference: drawing conclusions. Inference is using facts, observations, and logic or reasoning to come to an assumption or conclusion. It is not stating the obvious (stating the obvious: that girl is wearing a fancy dress and carrying a bouquet of flowers. inference: that girl is a flower girl in a wedding).
