Prereading Questions

1. What is the subject of the poem?
The subject of the poem is the change of seasons and leaves falling due to the change.
The poem addresses change in not only nature but also the human life and self being.
2. Summarize the literal action
The author uses symbolism throughout the poem to communicate his message.
The symbol of trees shedding leaves represents people transiting from one phase of life

where he recalls that trees do not die but they just adopt a new style shows the recurring
phases of development. The writer uses the imagery of travelling to view the leaves
falling as the road to effect changes in different aspects and portrays it as boring and
challenging. The contradiction that the person does not want the phenomenon to last but
also does not want it to end is a show of the two sides and lack of enthusiasm that
accompanies change.
