Lastly, the use of the singular pronoun of “I” before the phrase as opposed to simply starting off the line with “All alone” emphasizes the loneliness of the situation even further. The tone within these lines is self-pitying, lonely, desperate and overall indicative of a completely pessimistic outlook on the speaker’s part. However, the tone then shifts from depressed to envious within the next few lines, in which the speaker begins to compare himself to those around him, those with handsome features, many friends, art, greater talent etc. and he starts to find himself no longer content with what he used to enjoy. The tone once again shifts within the next quatrain, when a thought occurs to the speaker that begins to lift his spirits. He goes on to end the poem on a hopeful and content note, stating that the thought of his love makes him unwilling to change places even with kings.
