A Walk in Time!?


This is the first time that I have read this poem. It is an excellent poem and tells of a lot of interesting information. The reason why I picked this quote from the many that I could have chose was for one reason. I thought that time is changing as we are reading the poem. There are many lines that state my reasoning for saying this. An example, is on line 49, and it states, "For I have known them all already, known them all:--" It seems to me that this poem is telling about someone changing or maturing possibly. As one line stated, "How his hair is growing thin!" I got this message after reading the poem and think that it is telling us about becoming older in life.


Derek, I agree with you when you say that time is changing in this poem. And I think also that the poem is telling us not to waste the precious little time that we have and make this life and our actions worthwhile.

Derek, I really liked this poem too, although I had a hard time figuring out what it was about. But I agree with you; I also had the feeling that time was passing throughout the course of the poem.
