    Yes all things must die. The question is do You know where you are going After you die?
    The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 exactly what YOU must believe to be saved (and go to heaven when you die) YOU must believe that Jesus died on the cross for YOU'RE sins, and that he was buried, and that he rose from the dead.
    That's it. YOU don't have to do anything except believe (Ephesians 2: 8-9)

    “For even & morn
    Ye shall not see
    thro eternity! ! “
    The attitude of Tennyson in this poem is solemn & the image transmit the inevitable truth that all shall die.

    The form is terribly modern and free for the time. The content is terribly sad but realistic and thoughtfully expressed.

    The poet persona deeply explores the vanity of life making references to the natural creation which will one day become 'pale.' A good reason human should live a good life before death beckons. (Report) Reply

    The voice of the bird
    Shall no more be heard,
    Nor the wind on the hill.
    O, misery!

    nay, when the spring comes all things dead alive again
    and that repeated for several thousand years' time (Report) Reply

    O, vanity!
    Death waits at the door.
    See! our friends are all forsaking
    The wine and the merrymaking.
    We are call’d–we must go............ (Report) Reply
