Thoreau believed human life mimicked that of nature Thoreau used the simile of how a day is like a year The night is the winter the morning and evening are the spring and fall and the noon is the summer 200 Therefore following Thoreaus theory if nature is reborn every spring and never actually dies then life should be eternal as well Thoreau describes spring at the pond as rejuvenation from the death of winter At length the suns rays have attained the right angle and warm winds blow up mist and rain and melt the snowbanks and the sun dispersing the mist smiles on a checkered landscape of russet and white smoking with incense through which the traveller picks his way from islet to islet cheered by the music of a thousand tinkling rills and rivulets whose veins are filled with the blood of winter which they are bearing off 202 Winter is more like death or a latent state of the world Like the marmots in the surrounding hills it closes its eyes and becomes dormant for three months or more 189 Thoreau believed that human life was also like this Although mans life on earth is over it does not mean life itself is over just as Thoreau himself said So our human life but dies down to its root and still puts forth its green blade to eternity 207
