"Life is but Thought: so think I will

That Youth and I are housemates still.

Dew-drops are the gems of morning,

But the tears of mournful eve!

Where no hope is, life's a warning

That only serves to make us grieve

When we are old:"

One reason the poet want to hang onto the thoughts of youth can be found in the lines above. Youth is conducive to hope........ without it we are hopeless.
