Those Winter Sundays,by Robert Hayden, is a beautiful poem. Haydens poem ���tells a grown mans perspective of his father. In the poem it is clear that �there is distance between them and little communication. But it is discovered atthe 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 its cold because its winter and that its Sunday. Also, �that the events in the story took place in the past. As the speakers 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 workingman. It is obvious that the father was a very hard worker by the lines, with �cracked hands that ached from labor in weekday weather.�
