Nothing Gold Can Stay commentary


Nature's first green is gold[TV1] 
Her hardest hue to hold.[TV2] 
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf[TV3] .
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.[TV4] 
Nothing gold can stay.[TV5] 


Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire[TV6] ,
Some say in ice[TV7] .
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire[TV8] .
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
[TV9] And would suffice[TV10] .



 [TV1]Everything starts out as beautiful.

 [TV2]The first time you every do something it is normally the hardest.

 [TV3]Life comes to death

 [TV4]The day gets worse as it goes on.

 [TV5]Nothing beautiful can last.

 [TV6]The fire will engulf the earth.

 [TV7]Slowly dying like the sun and all of life

 [TV8]Quick, instant painless death

 [TV9]Death is a wonderful thing

 [TV10]Ice will kill just as fire
