"One Art" is told mostly in first person, though the speaker also addresses a complex "you" in the poem that at times might be the audience, a third person, or the poet speaking to herself.
"One Art" is told in a mixture of present and past tense, but it is primarily written in the present.
The title "One Art" is a reference to the "art" of losing things as a part of life and having those things transformed to a degree through the act of writing poetry.
