This poem makes me think about how people ignore people who seem to be
nothing. Although, once they are not there anymore, people then notice what
they were missing out on in life. These two people, described as someone
and anyone, live an abnormal life style. Everyone else live the normal,
respectable life style, while this one couple is so different that they are
excluded from the comunity. People lead their boring, every-day lifestyles,
these peoople are out of the ordinary. I believe that this poem is telling
us that you should respect others differences in your community, often
times they can teach you how to live a happy, youthful lifestyle. Also,
that you sahould not ignore members of your community because if you do,
your community will fall apart. Therefore you need to be an active member
in your community, Getting all of hte people in your community to
paricipate in activities. It is very important to involve yourself in your
community so that you can have a full and exciting life.

I don't really get this Peom that much. Bt this Peom is really sad, because
he was alone all the time and no one ever loved him, when he died no one
stopped by to kiss him goodbye. So nobody cared about eachother as years
went by. as year went by people didn't care about each other. This Peom is
beautiful because it shows that it was a beautiful peom and he says in the
peom that the town was beautiful too, but bad things happen to. It is not a
perfect town. So this town is not a perfect town like we thought of it.

this is an interesting poem it makes sense if you think about it. Anyone
and noone are off doen their own thing and everyone else is doen the same
thing and living the average boring life. I like the way the author
describes time going by with the seasons.

This poem is alright but i guess its not my type of thing. Its a cool poem
and i liked it but poems are pretty muchnotmy thing. The only i liked about
the poem is that they use realy weird names. The ending was pretty weird
but it was good.

This poem is a very depressing and yet is very good poem. It is filled with
shame and yet hope. it brings that kind of feeling that in every life there
is someone for you. Just for you. But when that person that one person
dies, you feel upset, your world is torn apart bit by bit. The person
anyone has no will to live and I can't blame him. In a ordinary town their
were two love birds. That no one cared for. But when they past on, they
stared to care for one another. So in conclusion It gives you that hope,
that someone is their for you and yet bad things will happen. And it is a
matter if you look at the bad thing in a good way or a bad thing in a bad
way. Thank you for everything. Mario O-M-W-G

This poem I like alot beceuse it has hidden meaning that u have to really
think about. Sadly sometimes it is true. There are people u dont even
really get to know and then they are just gone and noone cares... but in
reality if u think about it it relates to real life. Like seeing someone
tha u dont really know or havent tried to know... its like they are just
there and if they leaveor something happends noone would know.. its sad
really.

Carl and TingTang have a very good analysis of the poem. But what you have
to realize that not all writing is meant to have a clear black and white
meaning. Keep in mind that authors are human beings too...
