And there was a pink and golden billow of foamy clouds above the sea.

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter V) on Rap Genius

Meaning

Pink is often brought up when Daisy and Gatsby are together (later he’ll wear a pink suit when he insists to Tom that Daisy never loved him). It represents their love.

Gold is a color of great symbolic value and is mentioned frequently, especially when Daisy is around. She’s a “golden girl” who has lots of money and is like a “golden opportunity.”
