by Robert Herrick


GATHER ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old time is still a-flying :
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer ;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may go marry :
For having lost but once your prime
You may for ever tarry. Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may go marry :
For having lost but once your prime
You may for ever tarry Brie's interpretation:
Gather yourself together before its too late. To the Virgins by Robert Herricks GATHER ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old time is still a-flying :
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying. Jesse's interpretation:
Enjoy everything good about
life and get the best of everything
because one day you will wish you have. The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting. Interpretation:
Time is passing quickly, day by day. That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer ;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former. Brie's interpretation:
Enjoy life when you're young but don't lose track of time and waste away your life before your life truly has begun. Brie's interpretation:
Don't be wasteful of your youth, marry while you're still in your prime or you will regret it when you are older. Created by: Jesse Duran and Brieanna Jacobson Jesse's interpretation:
Try not to be shy in your
youth. Spend your entire life searching for your true
love, especially when you are young (at your prime), or else you may never find him/her. Jesse's interpretation:
Life is fun while you are young,
but as you get older, there seems
to be less to be happy about. Robert Herrick Born 1951 Cheapside, London Died October of 1674 Dean Prior, Devon, England Unspecified Schooling Westminister

Web. 28 Oct 2012. <http://www.poetryfoundation.org/bio/robert-herrick>. What we think? Students of 1959 In the movie, Dead Poets Society, this poem was used to introduce the idea of "Carpe Diem" or "Seize the Day".
Mr. Keating wanted the boys to realize how quickly time passes and wanted them to live their lives to their true potential. He didn't want them to look back when they were older and regret the decisions that they made. So this poem was an inspiration to the students of 1959, an inspiration to make use of their lives before the chance passes. When we first read the poem our first thought was that it meant to be happy and to live your life freely, but as we read and started to decipher, we realized that instead it was a poem warning its readers to "Seize the Day" and not to waste away your youth.
