Question: 304

2. In the last two stanzas of the poem, the speaker indicates that

  • A. he will lock the children in a dungeon for their shenanigans
  • B. his love for the children is everlasting
  • C. he will keep the children captive in his fortress
  • D. the children will have to tear down the walls if they ever wish to escape

Correct Answer: B


B The walls, fortress, and dungeon are all figurative, as the action of the poem takes place in the speaker's study or office space. The speaker uses those images to explain the eternal love he has for his children.
