This poem is found in The Outsiders and i enjoy it very much when we went
through it in the class, we go through it very throughly and i totally find
it meaningful and agreeable. Nothing good can stay can stay, like in the
case of everyone will eventually die. I find it very interesting and really
enjoy it very much.

It is a nice poem and.It reminds me of how all good things to not last
long, all good things would need to go away.This poem is very "real" as it
reflects our real life.It is also very touching to read it

I came across this peom when i was reading THE OUTSIDERS during lit
lesson...I think it is about our life... although it is writen like
describing the nature.... nothing good can really stay put in our life fro
very long.... not all part of our life we will be happy and satisfy... we
will always lost the good thing in our life after some time... I also
agreed with my teacher that this poem tells us about the innocence in
people will dies of.... normally children have innocence in them... which
people says tian zhen in mandrin... however this will not last long... it
will soon end when they enter this world and gain more knowlegde...if
someone were to appreciate little things in their like sunset and
sunrest...we could see many things that are beautiful and unique...
everyday's sunset and sunrise will be different but will always stay
beautiful...

The poem is very creative as it uses alot of description that has hidden
meanings. However it is a very difficult poem for many readers to
understand. I like it.

i think that this poem is very meaningful as it refers to life by saying
that nothing can ever stay. (-o'.')-oo-('.'o-)

THE POEM IS VERY NICE,IT REALLY TOLD US THAT SOMETHING PRECIOUS CAN NEVER
STAY THERE FOREVER FOR US AND THAT IS WHY WE HAVE TO CHERISH IT.THE POEM IS
ALSO QUITE PROFOUND AND WHEN I FIRST READ IT,I CANNOT REALLY UNDERSTAND.BUT
IT IS A VERY UNIQUE POEM.

i think this is a good poem as it tells us about how time is limited and
also tells us to cherish our youth and what we have now. it also tells us
not to take things for granted.
