    The symbol of dying or death is found in the poem when the poet says “sunset.” It symbolizes the fading away of life just like the sun setting somewhere in the horizon. Even the use of “evening” and “twilight” symbolize death and the last moments of life. The imagery of death is quite significant in the poem through the use of symbols denoting to old age or the last remaining moments of life.
