मृत्यु  एक  सरिता है जिसमे ,

Q.7. What does the poet say , death between two lives’?

Ans. The poet means to these words that there is rebirth in the world. Death is like a rest between two lives. Mans soul is immortal. Soul never dies. It changes its new home that is man’s body. Human body is like a garment to the immortal soul. Death is an   ultimate peace of life. Here we notice that the poet is entirely philosophical in his views. He has firm faith in rebirth that is after death. The words ‘rest’ and ‘pouse’ indicate the ‘peace’ between two lives. Here ‘death’ means physical death, not spiritual  death.
