This is one of the greatesat poems i have ever read in my life. I didn't
understand it at first, but my teacher explained it. Once i realized what
it meant i thought it was so true. People never realize what they have
until they don't have it anymore. It's truly a beautiful poem

Okay, well I also have to find the relationships between the first and
following words of each line.
Apparently, they're each polars. One goes without the other. There is no
love in death, and no happiness in pain. Also, for the birds part, birds
fly south for the winter to avoid snow

This poem is one of the best I've ever read. The first time i read this I
was in class, when i read it at first i didn't understnad it. But now i do
and i see how it relates to real life. I'm glad she wrote this poem because
it can open alot of peoples eyes if they let it.

I think that this poem is really beautiful and has a great meaning! We
really don't appreciate anything until it's taken away from us.
