  • The shift of the poem occurs when she says, "Haste! lest while you're lagging, I may remember him!" The poem goes from a slow pace, while the author is wallowing in her misery, to a faster, more frantic pace, as she is desperate to forget the man.
  • Shift
  • My heart and my head will forget a past love and finally get over him.
