Analysis

Winter is a perfect metaphor in poetry. It is used to describe the last part of someone’s life. As Spring is the youth and Summer is the adult life, Autumn and especially Winter represent the last part of the (adult) life. Winter is also a metaphor used to describe a feeling of decay or loss.

In his poem Rain has fallen all the day, Joyce combines his feelings of the approaching winter with the falling of rain. Rain is also a metaphor. It describes pain or sadness. Nature cries, all day long.

Rain has fallen all the day

Rain has fallen all the day.
O come among the laden trees:
The leaves lie thick upon the way
Of memories.

Staying a little by the way
Of memories shall we depart.
Come, my beloved, where I may
Speak to your heart.

— James Joyce
