paraphrase- "childhood is the kingdom where no one dies"

Maybe it has a double meaning.
1) Someone will die in the book thus crushing the childhood notion of immortality

2) There really will be a 'kingdom' made up of 'children' (vampires, wolves, etc.) that will never die.

The child is grown, and puts away childish things.
Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.

Discuss what you think this means to the story
I think it means Bella's still with the vampires and shall forever be with the vampires. But, that's just me.

I think the poem refers to how perhaps an immortal is forever a child in the sens that they will never grow old. The world is their playground because no mortal boundaries can hold them.
