‘Solitude’: A Poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
While the scheme remains the same the end sounds alternate as the poet saw fit. A reader should also take note of the repeating moments in which Wilcox makes use of internal rhymes. Through the next two stanza the speaker tries to make clear that one should do whatever possible to maintain a happy life surrounded by those who increase that happiness. Sadness will breed nothing but solitude. The poem concludes with the speaker adding that pain and death happen to everyone, but they will always be faced alone.
Edna Pickett's sophomore English class, circa Ella Wheeler Wilcox's "Solitude" plays out in three riming eight-line stanzas. Please note: The spelling, "rhyme," was introduced into English by Dr. Samuel Johnson through an etymological error. For my explanation for using only the original form, please see " Rime vs Rhyme: An Unfortunate Error. Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox has often been ridiculed — she features in Nicholas T. Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone; For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own. Sing, and the hills will answer; Sigh, it is lost on the air; The echoes bound to a joyful sound, But shrink from voicing care. Rejoice, and men will seek you; Grieve, and they turn and go; They want full measure of all your pleasure, But they do not need your woe. Feast, and your halls are crowded; Fast, and the world goes by.
I love it.
