1. The theme is frost acquaintances with his soul, with his inner thoughts. Every one
should deal with his thoughts. This poem is a beautifully comforting poem. It talks about
being at peace with one's self and enjoying the tranquility that reflection into your own
mind and soul can bring. There is a certain solitude brought about by removing one's self
from the view of others but this solitude brings clarity, not depression. In order to
attain peace, one must at first accept being alone. Everyone is alone sometime in this
life. This state of being alone might at first seem sad, but in truth, can be quite

The author enjoys being acquainted with the night. This is because this night brings to
for him to reflect upon his life. He delights in escaping into that night so that he can
rediscover himself. He can watch and ponder about life in general.

“ luminary clock “ - Refers to the sun. The dawn of the sun told him that his
actions within himself (those of the night) were acceptable. Now he must move on, at
least a little while, to expose himself within the sun (he most interact with others)
until he find the time (the night) to find solace within himself again. The author was
"one acquainted with the night," and in this night we find ourselves and bring about
tranquility-the inner peace so longed for by all.
