    P.S. Here's something on "tone:"

    tone: The manner in which an author expresses his or her attitude; the intonation of the voice that expresses meaning. Tone is described by adjectives, and the possibilities are nearly endless. Often a single adjective will not be enough, and tone may change from chapter to chapter or even line to line. Tone is the result of allusion, diction, figurative language, imagery, irony, symbol, syntax, and style.

    Here is the whole substance of the poem.

    "was glad he had written his poems.
    They were of a remembered time
    Or of something seen that he liked."

    What would the "tone" be?
