All Things Will Die by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Nothing Will Die by Alfred Lord Tennyson
May 04, PM. When will the wind be aweary of blowing Over the sky? When will the clouds be aweary of fleeting? When will the heart be aweary of beating? And nature die?
Each stanza follows its own pattern of rhyme. The first contains rhyming sets of tercets and couplets, conforming to the pattern of, aaabbccddb. A reader should take note of the last, very short, five lines of this section as they come in the form of a list. The speaker is noting all of the reasons why the world will go on forever. The second stanza is formatted differently, it follows a slightly less structured pattern of, abaccdeebdfghhfg. The lines do not match up in one precise order, but by the end of the stanza each line has found its matching rhyme. In the third stanza the rhyme scheme is altered once more.
Come not, when I am dead, To drop thy foolish tears upon my grave, To trample round my fallen head, And vex the unhappy dust thou wouldst not save. There let the wind sweep and the plover cry; But thou, go by. Child, if it were thine error or thy crime I care no longer, being all unblest: Wed whom thou wilt, but I am sick of Time, And I desire to rest. Pass on, weak heart, and leave me where I lie: Go by, go by. He clasps the crag with crooked hands; Close to the sun in lonely lands, Ring'd with the azure world, he stands. The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls; He watches from his mountain walls, And like a thunderbolt he falls. Thus truth was multiplied on truth , the world Like one great garden show'd, And thro' the wreaths of floating dark up-curl'd, Rare sunrise flow'd.
Every heart this May morning in joyance is beating. Full merrily; Yet all things must die. The stream will cease to flow; The wind will cease to.

Post a Comment. From the title, I can perceive that this poem will take on the role of being critical, reflexive and make use of a sorrowful tone, which would create a gloomy ambiance, as for the theme, I think that he'll be making an insight on how ephemeral life is. After reading, I made a few interjections over how I interpret what the author meant. For example: from the 1st to the 7th verse, the author wrote with a tone of happiness or joy along with a relatively swift rhythm, appreciating all living things and delving into their beauty, but from that point and onwards, the tone changes to a depressive or melancholic tone while slowing down the poem's rhythm, with its predominant theme being how all things will wither away and die. The first interjection that I made was on the 31st verse, which read: "The red cheek paling".
