The poet has glorified poetry in his poem as poetry makes a man immortal which cannot be done by any other thing. Statues and monuments erected in the remembrances of kings and rulers get destroyed by time. But his poem will outlive all these and will be a written record. It will immortalize his friend. No force of nature can destroy it.
