i really like this poem.
it's simple yet so inspiring...
for me, it talks about a breath of fresh air from the fast life that most
people are leading now. it's like telling the people to stop, look, and
appreciate. that even in our mundane and sometimes routinely life, little
things are important too, sometimes just as important as big things,
because these little things are truly what matters in finding happiness.
well, that's my interpretation :)

the poem was nice it reminds me about how much fun you can have when you
are happy. The poem expresses so much happiness and its telling you that
happiness is the best thing that can happen to you because then you dont
think about other bad things like death.

This poem is reminding us to appreciate the simple things in life and try
to find happiness in things that come unexpectedly.

In response to Danny boy I don't agree that you have to have compassion or
intellect to enjoy writing and you may have compassion and intellect too
and not enjoy writing.

It amazes me that there are certain people who go to the trouble of posting
a comment on here informing the masses that they don't understand this poem
and that its mundane/boring whatever. Maybe these people are exploring the
worng type of literature.....try OK magazine or HELLO ! This poem to me
reads as though Carver himself is able to find relief from all the chaos in
his life, perhaps his fears of ill health, leaving behind loved ones etc.
He focuses on the two boys outside delivering papers and is overcome by the
innocence and purity of their presence. Yes they are "just paperboys"
however, anyone with a single ounce of compassion or intellect should find
some kind of pleasure in entering into the writer's mindset. I love this
poem. Anyone who has had pain in their lives like myself I am sure will
find solice in this poem.

Carver is my favourite writer and poet, I love his simplicity, lack of
pretentions and subtleness. I had read this poeam thousands of times and it
never stops amazing me his straightness, his almost totally naked writing.
