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 .

Robert Frost wrote it Ponyboy tells Johnny I always remembered it because I never quite got what he meant by it Cherry a beautiful Soc comes to share a special sensitivity with Ponyboy as she discovers that he remembers poems and needs to watch sunsets At the same time Cherry s attracted to the older tougher Dallas and in a sense she s caught in the violent space between the Greasers and the Socs While the Socs appear to have everything the only thing a Greaser has is his friends As these young people try to find themselves and each other as the sadness of sophistication begins to reach them and their battles and relationships reach a resolution Ponyboy s dying friend Johnny sends him a last message I ve been thinking about the poem that guy wrote He meant you re gold when you re a kid like green When you re a kid everything s new dawn It s just when you get used to everything that it s day Like the way you dig sunsets Pony That s gold Keep it that way It s a good way to be This is a play about young people who are not yet hopeless about latent decency in the midst of struggle Area staging Approximate Running Time hours by S.E. Hinton
