i think that this poems shows that innocence cannot last, no matter how
hard we try to preserve it.

this is a beautiful poem with a very interesting theme to it.in 'the
outsiders' this poem is used to show that pony and johnny lost their
innocence just like how adam and eve lost their innocence after eating the
forbidden apple in eden.this poem shows very clearly what it wants to
say,that is:nothing good can stay with us forever.thus,the more we should
cherish the things and people around us now and not regret only when we
lose them.especially our loved ones.

it tells you to live life to the fullest and the meaning of it as the poem
wants to show that life is short..so cherish it.

i think this poem is too deep for me to understand =X
however, i was able to understand what the poem is trying to tell us- to
cherish life and everything that we have as nothing lasts forever- after
our teacher did an analysis with us.

This is a fantastic poem and i read it in the outsiders.I could not get the
meaning of the poem until doing the analysis on it.I like the meaning of
this poem.

I find this poem really meaningful, as it tells us to treasure and enjoy
happy moments whlie we can, even though it is rather sad.
