Question: How should I represent Frost's poem!?
We're supposed to make a representation of a poem for English!. I got "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost!.
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!.

We're supposed to represent the poem in a way that shows exactly what the meaning the poem is!. Any ideas!? The poems is about how all good things, youth in particular, ends even if we don't want it to!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

What about a photography series!? Perhaps, even family photos showing grandparents as children, then parents, then elderly!. Show the progression and evolution of the family!. You can show how your own parents went from being the family children to the family's parents and adults!. It's representative of they way in which the world continues on no matter what!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Robert Frost, although fairly well traveled, made his home in New England, where fall foliage is peak!. This, no doubt, had it's tantalizing influence which is reflected in this poem!.

The cycle of life begins gold colored leaf buds which give way to flowered blooms then to green leaves as in the apple tree, for instance!. Then, gives up to begin again another season!.

I would consider the seasons and it's affect on life as in a tree for representation!. Just a thought!.!.!.

Robert Frost is my favorite followed by John KeatsWww@QuestionHome@Com
