1. Short-response prompt (15 points) Read the following two poems: "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. "The Red Wheelbarrow" by William Carlos Williams so much depends upon a red wheel barrow
