The tiltle To the Virgins to Make much of time gives a hint as to the meaning of the work We gleam from the title that Time is going to be significant However we cannot know what the context of time is without the benefit of reading further We also learn that Virgins plays an integral part of this work Somehow the two become connected and reflect innocence and time The thoughts of time going quickly reflect throughout the poemm The opening stanza gives the illumination of time ending soon The speaker is quite direct in this thought and continues to carry this theme through the entire work Stanza two reflects the ending of the day and signifies that life ends all too soon as well The third stanza gives reference to the fact that prime years are short and once lost are never retrieved again The final stanza supports the third with the lines For having lost but once your prime Lost but once your prime is a reflection of lost innocence illuding to the virgins If your inncocene is lost then you are in for the worst of times Be prepared and live now in the moment Take this time to marry and prepare for the rest of your life
