But as I raved and grew more fierce and wild, At every word, Methoughts I heard one calling, Child! And I replied, My Lord. How do these lines end the somewhat heavy poem on a more lighthearted note?

But as I raved and grew more fierce and wild,

At every word,

Methoughts I heard one calling, Child!

And I replied, My Lord.

How do these lines end the somewhat heavy poem on a more lighthearted note? How does the speaker’s tone change over the course of the poem?
