In the poem “October” by Robert Frost the theme in the poem is that nature is a beautiful thing and you cant take it for granted and you need to some and express nature as what it is and not ignore it. The mood that I had when reading this poem was that it is really relaxing and peaceful because its talking about how nice the month October is, when he says ”O hushed October morning mild”(1). The tone of the author is respectful because he is enjoying the nature and what it has to give to people,when he says ”Make the day seem to us less brief”(9).

The speaker is the author because he us talking about him being there in the nature watching it. The speaker is in a place where there is alot of tree a and the wild is just blowing then and they are falling off the tree.

Its also used when it says “ thy leaves have ripened to the fall; tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild, should waste them all.”(2-3) the effect of this device is that you can see the leaves on the tree and the wind blowing them and each one of them falling to the ground.
