This poem has been inspiring me from my childhood and now about 66 years of
old. I cannot just forget it. think of the philosophy of it .It is like
Indian Geeta's philosophy. Co not go by the words used but go by the spirit
of the poet. The message is pure and simple. Consider the 200 years old
English and the age of the writer. He was great philosopher. Hats off!

This poem is quoted to good effect by P.G. Wodehouse in his novel, "The
Girl on the Boat." If you are of a mind to enjoy this poem, and are not
yet familiar with Wodehouse, than you are in for a treat!

My 98 year old Mother recites parts of this poem frequently. It is
something she learned in school that she did for a program. She doesn't
always remember what she did yesterday but she always remembers this poem.
I was thrilled when my daughter found it on the internet.

my boyfriend showed me this poem...we are kinda in a difficult time...hes
going away to college in a few months maybe and ive been so worried about
what will happen to us and he showed me this today and it has made me
realize that i dont need to get in the dumps about it...i need to live life
day by day and take it as it comes...and know that when he is gone...its
not so much that he is gone its what he has left behind that has made all
the difference and that will determine how far in life together we will
go...this poem has really opened my eyes...i think everyone should read
it...very much an eye opener!

I ready this poem and admittedly believe much is wasted on me --- but it is
beautiful and carries much meaning to me. To me it says, it is not the
birth or death of a person that really matter, it is what you do with the
time between the two events. It tells us to find our own path, to be an
individual, to seek life and live it to the fullest. This poem is very
spiritual to me and fits with anyone's particular belief.
