Seize the Day

Hi ladies! Today, I am sharing to you a classic poem. Actually, one of my favorites in college. It talks about the importance of using time wisely. Hope you can relate and get inspired.





To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time
by Robert Herrick

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may, go marry:
For having lost but once your prime,
You may for ever tarry.

  2. The poem is really good.. :)

    It uses simple yet meaningful words... :)

    My fave. part was..
    "The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
    The higher he's a-getting,
    The sooner will his race be run,
    And nearer he's to setting."

    It says that everything ages... Everything will come to an end...

    "Then be not coy, but use your time,
    And while ye may, go marry:
    For having lost but once your prime,
    You may for ever tarry"

    Reading between the lines of the poem, it just says to do what you can do today so there will be less regrets in the future.

  11. *nosebleed* :))

    In actuality though, the words are simple. It equates to TIME IS GOLD and SEIZE THE DAY. As a working mother especially, it tells me to prioritize things. It tells me to spend my time with things and people who matter most. No regrets!

  13. great poem! i like these parts:

    "That age is best which is the first,
    When youth and blood are warmer;
    But being spent, the worse, and worst
    Times still succeed the former.

    Then be not coy, but use your time,
    And while ye may, go marry:
    For having lost but once your prime,
    You may for ever tarry."

    the poem tells me that time is the most valuable thing a man can spend. We should give our best in everything we do and enjoy every moment of it. Because time flies and can never be found again. So regretting for wasted time is more wasted time.

    followed you also.

    thanks for the invite sis. God bless! =)

  15. Such a lovely poem Ateh, I think the idea of the poem is act now before it’s too late - the day is fleeting so seize the day while you are young.

    It is true that the time is fast approaching; we are not going to be young forever. Time will come we are going to get old and we can't prevent our self to get older. So we have to do the things we have to do today, don’t wait for tomorrow to come let’s all forget the word mañana habit. Act now or never as it says! Live life to the fullest so there’s no regret in the future.

  16. this is my favorite part of the poem:
    "Then be not coy, but use your time,
    And while ye may, go marry:"

    I think it's the same as my favorite saying: seize the moment!

  19. habol pa ko sis!

    I love this part in the poem:

    Then be not coy, but use your time,
    And while ye may, go marry:
    For having lost but once your prime,
    You may for ever tarry.

    It only means seize the day, seize every opportunity you have. Otherwise, you may go ahead and regret everything, we can never turn back time.
