    This poem definitely showed me that you can look at many things in this world and find a deeper meaning to it. Even if it is something as simple as ploughing and harvesting, there is always something deeper you can find by just thinking about it. I really enjoyed the poem. (Report) Reply

    I like this poem because Walt Whitman describes how the life and death of everything can be seen in our surroundings and that people create and destroy life just as they do everything else in nature. (Report) Reply

    I liked this poem because so many other poets have compared life and death to something in nature, but here I see something deeper. He's comparing life and death to the fields growing their crops, but its only by the will of a man that they are put there, and it is only by the will of a man that they are taken away.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
