The poem of Those Winter Sundays has a very interesting and peculiar ending The author of the poem leaves the ending open By an open ending I mean the author ends the poem with a question Since the poem ends in this fashion it makes it hard to interpretAt the end of the poem it says What did I know what did I know This is a hard line in the poem to understand In a way the author is telling a story of his former child hood The child hood of the author was a tough one He was raised by a neighbor who loved him as their own I am sure he had to ask him self if he knew what love was all about Where are my parents and why are they not here to show me their love The author was setting a tone for the poem He was taking what he knew about love in his own life and applying it to his poetry He was looking back at his own life and saying what do I know about anything On the other hand the repeated phrase also sounds a note of defiance The author may want to defend his child hoodJohnson Jeannine An Overview of Those Winter SundaysKentucky Christian Coll Lib GraysonHayden Robert Those Winter Sundays An Introduction toLiterature 12th ed Ed Sylvan Barnet et al
