  • Second Stanza Season Autumn Soft
    1,355 words
    'To Autumn' is a lyrical poem, which propounds the writer's feelings and thoughts on a particularly beautiful day. The poet and the narrator appear to be one and the same and he appears to be the sole spectator of the luscious scenery. Whilst in the first stanza the poem does not speak directly to any one person, but simply describes the scenery, the second stanza seems to be addressing the autumn season itself, 'Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?' In the last stanza the poem seems to be...

When the snow drifts up high and deep, school will be canceled and I will have more time to play. Also, my mom will enjoy it more because she can be at home and not work because of the drifts. Also, in the winter I hear Christmas caroli...
