The central idea of the poem The Ball Poem is that every person tries to possess things. He feels as if the things which he possess will always remain with him. However he has to lose them one day and bear the pain of its loss.
A person gets attached to his possessions and thus when he loses them, he feels depressed and sorrowful. The poet says that we have to accept this harsh reality and also try to move on because it is useless to cry over spilt milk. We cannot bring back the things which we lose. So we should always move on.
