How has the poet made use of the comparisons in ‘The Brook’?

The lines ‘For men may come and men may go, but I go on forever’ are very significant. These lines are the refrain of the poem. They depict the striking contrast between the brook whose journey is eternal and never ending and the human life which is transitory and has to come to an end one day or the other. These lines tell that man is mortal, whereas the brook, a symbol of nature, is immortal.
