    1. heaven’s gifts being heaven’s due,

      The writer of the poem includes many religious elements throughout the poem and references heaven quite a lot. This belief in the after-life, where they think the passed youth has been gifted, most likely provides solace to the mourning.

    2. parents’ ruth,

      Really interesting word choice that I've never heard before. Sets the tone of the poem to involve sadness and grief right from the start.
