A book of Robert Frost's Poetry - the poem quoted in the movie is called "Nothing Gold Can Stay"

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.

Johnny got Ponyboy "Gone with the Wind" because Johnny wanted Pony to read it to him.
