Theme and Symbolism

Happy Monday everyone! I don't know about you, but this is what I felt like doing when my alarm went off this morning:
Today in class, we talked about theme and symbols. Pairs identified symbols and thematic concepts in the poem "Wild Asters" by Sara Teasdale:

In the spring I asked the daisies
  If his words were true,
And the clever, clear-eyed daisies
  Always knew.

Now the fields are brown and barren,
  Bitter autumn blows,
And of all the stupid asters
  Not one knows
Homework is to write a half-page response in your journal to answer these questions:

o   How can a person know what is most important to focus on in life? What might happen if someone focuses on the wrong thing? 

-Mrs. L.
