Those Winter Sundays Growing up in New England one knows the true meaning of winter In Robert Haydens poem Those Winter Sundays he uses many techniques to get the point of coldness across and also the point about how the speaker viewed his father The best technique that is used in the poem is imagery Without getting lost in the great use of imagery in the poem one cannot forget the true meaning that Hayden is portraying the imagery can help find the meaning though The lesson in the poem is that the father made many sacrifices for his family at the same time the speaker doesnt realize the sacrifices until he himself becomes an adult The father in Haydens poem made many sacrifices for his family The first sacrifice is seen in the poems first line Sundays too my father got up early 10 This shows that the father got up early on his only day off to get the house warm for his family The word too from the first line tells the reader that the father got up early every other day of the week for work The next sacrifice the father makes is that not only does he get up early he gets up in the cold the father put his clothes on in the blueblack cold 10 Getting up early his a hard thing in itself but getting up and knowing that you could be sleeping in a warm bed is worse Instead of sleeping in his warm bed the father gets up and works in the blueblack cold 10 The blueblack is the color of the sky on a freezing winter morning and is not a pleasant sight if you have to be up and about in it Another sacrifice that the father makes is that he does manual labor in the cold all week with cracked hands that ached from labor in the weekday weather
