Nice way of ending it

I love how my first impression of the poem was completely wrong once I read
the last line. Awesome way of being negative and then saying the sweetest
possible words. "It well may be. I do not think I would."

Yipee! I my heart swells to know others have found Millay. I too found her
in high school! The wonderful Millay will now be with you always... I am
now 45 and read her many times during the year when I wish to refocus. Luck
to all in your jounrey.

The desire to live life to the fullest, perhaps not wisely, but
passionately, is also shown in her sonnet, "Love is not all." This lyric is
a regular verse sonnet follows the traditional format for a Shakespearean
sonnet, but uses antithesis and somewhat shocking imagery to express her
thoughts on love.

This poem is the best by far of all the poems that I have read. It's
defines what love is for most people. Here's my analysis of it:

Love is something that we do not need to live physically but emotionally we
die without it.
