Question 6: The poet has used the same word to start six of the fourteen lines in the poem. What is the word? What impact does it have?
Answer: The poet has used the word ‘and’ to start six of the fourteen lines in the poem. The impact is that it creates the sense of an ongoing journey, his walk, and the sense of connected thoughts that walking often produces.
Question 7: How many complete sentences are in the poem? Is there a different mood or feeling in the last two sentences?
Answer: There are two sentences in the poem. The first sentence contains longer sections that run over the line ends. It contains the connective ‘and’ numerous times and creates a sense of his ongoing walk. The pace is faster in the second sentence because it is shorter; it also contains a lot more punctuation which makes it seem like he is being more decisive. It also contains negatives, ‘cannot,’ ‘never,’ and ‘naught’, which convey a sense of loss or negativity. Perhaps this reflects the end of his walk and less freedom for him.
