the flower that smiles today

The delights of this world are tempting but momentary. I think Shelley is not jeering at the lightning so much but rather pointing out that it is beautiful and also defiant against the void and the eternal the night ; I think he is admiring mortality, but at the same time saying how short in time and how slight in impact. It was just something that came to mind. The flower that smiles today Tomorrow dies; All that we wish to stay Tempts and then flies; What is this world's delight? Greatly done, I enjoyed in this poem, the thing that impressed me most is that you managed to truly say a lot through such short piece. It may fill us with a warm, though sad feeling of having had good times, and having lived a good life.

The following three lines are a bit vague-- they seem to say something like we ought to survive the fall of these virtues. Whilst skies are blue and bright, Whilst flowers are gay, Whilst eyes that change ere night Make glad the day; Whilst yet the calm hours creep, Dream thou—and from thy sleep Then wake to weep.
