Holmes, Oliver Wendell, Sr. "The Chambered Nautilus." Poetry Foundation, n.d. Web. 20 Mar. 2016.

The final stanza conveys the theme of the poem which is


we must constantly strive to be better human beings.

the seasons roll swiftly past and we must hold onto life.


we can be shut from heaven, so we need to be good people.
