I just have watched “Dead Poet Society”. A pretty old movie, featuring Robin Williams, who just passed away four days ago. It’s a good movie, and I was touched by the story. I am not going to talk about the story movie, but I just want to share a short poem which was told in the beginning of the movie. Here is the poem.

To the virgins to make much of time


Gather ye rosebuds while ye may

Old time is still a flying

And this same flowers that smiles today, tomorrow will be dying

Robin Williams (Dead Poets Society Movie) 1989

It’s a simple poem, but really meaningful. And I think that I can consider that it would be a poem for a lifetime, for me myself.

Mr Keating (Robin Williams) concluded that the meaning of the poem is

Carpe diem

(Seize the Day)

I think it was one of his best acting in a movie. Goodbye, Mr. Keating, Goodbye Robin Williams.

O Captain, My Captain!
