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
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
(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!
