The Day is Done

The Day is Done

"The Day is Done" doesn't tell a story so much as it describes a feeling, a moment, a state of mind. The speaker of the poem tells us he's worn out after a long day, and feeling a little blue. What he wants more that anything is to have a poem read to him – not just any old poem, not something full of war and excitement and big ideas.
