There Will Come Soft Rains

In the first 6 lines of the poem, There Will Come Soft Rains by, Sara Teasdale, it talks about aspects of nature in metaphoric and descriptive form.  The last 4 lines say, “Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree, If mankind perished utterly;
And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn, Would scarcely know that we were gone.   To me this means that even if humans destroy themselves completely by war or just downright oblivion the whole world would not even bat an eye.  The poem tells us to focus on the better thing in life and to do things that actually matter.  War only gives out negative repercussions and people want to forget it but by doing something that is good and kind in our life it will live on far longer than the memory of war because people actually want to remember that good thing.  Even just doing something like giving someone a sincere compliment, or telling someone that you love them it can make an even bigger difference then going to war and having family members, neighbors, and loved ones die for almost nothing.  I think that mankind is finally realizing this and trying to reverse and better their past, present and future actions.
