a very short but interesting poem. i would say the poet was very celever to
have used the ever changes in nature to show that nothing good or precious
can stay and these precious things are abstract so u can't just try to grab
it or whatsoever.

This poem is beautiful and it is indeed profound.I found it to be just
another poem not until i realise what the poem means, it is really
meaningful and inspirational as it actually relates to our life. When we
are a child,we are innocent,pure and youthful however as we grow older, our
innocence and youthfulness just fade away, we are losing them slowly. All
the good things will eventually come to an end no matter what.. just like
what is written in the poem.. things will just never stay the same. Dawn
still has to go down to day, thus this poems teaches me to treasure and
cherish the beautiful momments and the love ones around me. Great poem i
love it.

If we read the poem for the first time..perhaps we might feel it is yet
another poem..but when you catch the meaning and able to feel what the poet
is talking about..it is afterall very meaningful and interesting. We know
that when something first appear it seems just amazingly beatiful but also
learn that life is never perfect thus trying to say nothing would stay as
it own beatiful self as times go pass..from the poem we also learn that we
should always treasure the "golden" things we have so that we will not

i find that this poem is meaningful. It teaches us that nothing in this
world will last forever . It teaches me to treasure ever thing we have.The
poem also made me understand that as a child is more innocent they look at
things differently . Overall, I enjoy this poem alot because it portraits
something that happens to everyone in life and alos it have lots of meaning
in it.

The poem tells us to value what we have as things that are very good do not
last for long. it also tells us to treasure of youth and childhood. it
teaches me to work hard now and have a better future

This poem is great.It reflects on how all good things need to come to an
end.For example the sunrise will never stay at the same position for the
rest of the day and Adam Eve will never be able to return to the garden of
Eden anymore.Just like our innocence and youth,we can never stay young and
innocent all our life.As time passes,we would all grow old and lose the
innocent we use to have when we just a child.Therefore,it is best that we
cherish all the time we have with our family and friends,so as to not
regrett about what we did to them or what we have not done for them.

This poem is very touching. It describes the cycle of life, and how
everything will perish no matter how beautiful or precious it is. It
relates to how Pony and Johnny lose their innocence, and I feel it is
telling us that we should treasure our youth and make full use of it.

This is a good poem decribing how one's precious things, one's youth,
innocence etc.It shows how quickly good things and chances fade away.It is
a good poem worth to read as it describes the cycle of life how everything
in the world comes and goes...

This poem is quite well-written. It expresses how quickly good things and
chances fade away. It is impossible for all good things to stay forever.
There definitely will be one day that they will slip away. Therefore, we
should cherish and grasp hold of any chances we have, so that we will not
regret when they are gone.
