Water, is taught by thirst.

Land-by the Oceans passed.

Transport-by throe-

Peace-by its battles told-

Love, by Memorial Mold-

Birds, by the Snow.

I believe the poem means that we don\'t appreciate what we have until it is gone. That is so true though because we take everything for granted nowadays. Truly a beautiful poem.

I think that this poem is talking about how a protected child can only know things without appreciation. Until through their own experience and empathy they gain an understanding of the reliving qualities these things have.

This poem is the most delicate and beautiful way to show us we never know the refridgerator was running till it suddenly shuts off and we hear the real slience. We undertand how much we loved the life in another when they die, we learn how much we love land being away at sea, we learn the importance of peace we had when we are in the pain of war, and for those who don't get it, we learn how nice it is to have birds around to sing and treat our eyes, by winter when they are gone and all that is left in the air is the smell of exhaust.

I think she is saying that we come to appreciate things the most when we are without them. What makes the poem so brillaint is the economy of words she uses to get the point across. In doing this, she not only states what\'s true, but does it in a beautiful manner. Brevity is the soul of wit - Shakespear. It\'s the soul of all expression.

Until your very thirsty u don\'t learn how wonderful it is,
Land isn\'t very appreciated till u c that without it u drown,
Rapture ( is transport( retards)) isn\'t looked upon real highly till u expierience great pain,
N I think u should all get the flow of it, some confusion on the birds pretty EZ they migrate wen it snows n she corky likes the
So that just makes her realize how much they mean to her
U don\'t cherish wat u have till its gone is the point of the story I\'m a 16 yo guy in highskool n I figured it out just fine. Hope this helps the illiterates n pardon my shorthand. - DH

The speaker states that when we donít have certain things like water, land, or love and peace, we tend to realize how much we cherish those certain things. In other words, we tend to cherish things when they are gone.

i believe the birds part is meant to say that in the winter birds migrate and the people are left without their songs.

It is really all about opposites. The first two lines are clearly different, but then the 3rd and and 5th are opposites. Talks about feeling great pain, then embracing it and expressing love towards the subject (most likly the person who died) The last line is another opposite revelent to nature to keep doing repitition.

This poem isn\'t about life, its talking about how you can never really know and cherish something until its gone, the birds im not quite sure, but im thinking its talking about birds migrating and the weak get left behind.. Not sure though.:)

The poem in the first line talks about the world and the unlucky people who do not have the advantages we have. The second line is talking about Land and how it cannot thrive without the ocean. The third line expresses the emotion that Emily probally had that came and then had gone. Fourth line maybe means that we all want peace in the world and that fighting is no way to recieve it. In the Fith line it means after one dies we remember them and cherish their memories and will forever love them. The Sixth I believe is talking about the weather and how birds migrate and change.

that is b/c you are dumb and it shows great anguish and grieve, it makes you feel as though you can feel what she is experiencing at this point in her life. You take a walk in her shoes as she shows the imagery and metaphors to explain the unhappiness in her life.

I think this poem is saying that you can't truly understand something until you have experienced it's opposite. which is a very strong and true statement.

I THINK THAT THIS PEOM IS VERY DEEP AND ASTONISHINGLY MAKES SENSE TOWARD THE SITUATION WERE IN TODAY

This poem really has no life to it, and should not be read because it is so dull, boring, and dumb.
