"Nothing Gold Can Stay" was published in New Hampshire, Frost's first book of four—that's right, four—to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize. (Source.)

"Nothing Gold Can Stay" may have inspired the title of an album by the band New Found Glory. Maybe you can convince your parents to buy it for you—for educational purposes of course.

If nothing gold can stay, well then here's hoping Frost's stuff isn't made from gold. Even President Kennedy was a fan of Frost and said that Americans would "forever gain joy and understanding" from his work. (Source.)
