Those Winter Sundays, by Robert Hayden, is a beautiful poem. Hayden s poem tells a grown man s perspective of his father. In the poem it is clear that there is distance between them and little communication. But it is discovered at the end of the poem, that love is actually present. Although it is only a 14- line poem, it packs remarkable power into each line. The very unrythmed poem begins with a very simple line letting you know what tone and mood the poem is set in. The title Those Winter Sundays , also lets you know that it s cold because its winter and that its Sunday. Also, that the events in the story took place in the past. As the speaker s father is introduced, I am lead to believe that he is the he will be a main topic of the poem. The speaker in the story gave the image that the father was a hard working man. It is obvious that the father was a very hard worker by the lines, with cracked hands that ached from labor in weekday weather .
