This provides another clue as to what he is driving at: This is hinted at by the imagery employed in the first stanza:. The tautness of the quatrain i.
This lends the lines a purposeful and decisive feel: The internal rhymes are delicately balanced, so that while and smiles come at the same point in the first and third lines respectively the sixth syllable in the line and still and will come at the same point in the second and fourth lines the fourth syllable in each case. Not only do these pairs of words rhyme internally with each other, but they also cross over and echo the other pair of words: This is, technically speaking, highly efficient and tightly constructed verse — and this is important because the poet wants to convince us of the certainty of what he says.
The other three stanzas of the poem extend the central sentiment so pithily and perfectly expressed in that opening stanza. They are less remarkable than the first verse, but they do display a similar use of repetition of contrasts and opposites: It says what it wants to say with extraordinary technical proficiency, yet without sacrificing the simplicity of its central message.

Robert Herrick author unknown , via Wikimedia Commons. Thank you for the pleasant reminder! I would add something about how modernity reshapes the message. Herrick lived at a time when lives were like roses. They could be blighted at first blush by poor health or poor hygiene, and disease, or whisked away entirely by plague, or by childbirth.
