This poem is set at a difficult time in the poet’s life. At this time, the poet was injured and lying by the side of the road. In the absence of any human company, he was distressed. He was also in great pain, both physically and mentally. The poet goes on to describe two different resolutions to this setting. Both of these resolutions are contrasts to each other, and his message is conveyed through the device of this very contrast in the scenario.
