I lost my dad when I was eleven. I carried this poem in my wallet for
atleast 25 years since his death. It somehow comforted me during sad
times. I retyped it and put it in a favorite place. I send to anyone who
loses a parent. We do keep things to remember them by but continue our
lives with their memories.

I recently picked this poem to recite in speech class. It is so easy to
read the that is portrayed through the words of Edna St. Vincent Millay. It
struck me and Im guessing makes not only me but everyone else stop and take
the time to remember that life will go on, no matter what hardships and
trials we face. It emits hope and strength yet sorrow and mourning. Love

my Father introduced this poem to me when I was 14 and now that I am 54 and
he just died last week, hope to use it in his funeral service. The last
line says it all--Live goes on, I forget just why. He will be missed
greatly. 12/23/2008.

My teacher gave me this book to read just recently and I just happened to
read this exact poem. I like the way that it is so simple but somehow
catches your attention. I wonder what atually happened in the story and if
the boy was actually sick.

sara- this was really good and true.

Kira- I liked this poem because it is not lying because it shows that when
something bad happens, you can not let it stall your life, like you said,
Life must go on.
