The poem goes on. It's a beautiful picture of how selfish we as humans are and how giving nature is to us. It can also be related to how much God gives us and how we just keep asking and asking from Him and then when we are finally at the end of ourselves, we might have time for Him. I think we should live each moment to the fullest, but never forgetting WHY we are here. Our purpose in life..... SIEZE THE DAY!
