    1. leave these

      Assonance of "leave these". Purpose? A lyric aid to memory. I think you will find an attention to detail in this sonnet of Still's that is all about helping the reader to memorize the poem. I used to have eighth graders memorize this poem in an 80 minute block. Not possible without the careful attention to lyric rhetoric here. The assonance, repetition, rhyme, alliteration, and all the other lyric tools reside in this eminently memorizable poem.
