The literature in the 9th stanza of The Last Ride Together , attains the climax of the rejected lover;s philosophy .

He believes in Providence .God's will is all.For his case , his failure of getting the mistress as life-partner , is a kind of bliss . He must wait and see .He must strive from life here to life hereafter .With a fiery -will , he llok forward .If he could have the garland of the lady in this transitory world , in that case , his desire of running after an ideal ,would have been lost for ever .

In our life , there are two things only ,-an object , and striving of realizing the object .The lady love is the object , Heaven is the place , and the lover's pursuance is the running after the object .
