Literally happening - A fly is with her as she dies, buzzing around her.



  1. What is the mood? Tranquility, Anticipation, the calm before the storm. Gravity
  2. What changes the mood? The fly.
  3. What effect does she create in lines 13?  The buzzing of the fly.
  4.  I could not see to understand.
  5. She gave her material things away.
  1. The pauses between the words help show the fly moving around.

8.   The tone we hear in this poem is a kind of questioning. Disappointment, irony.
