Quote #7

Now Lycidas the shepherds weep no more (182)

The shepherds no longer weep for Lycidas, but why? Is it because they know that Lycidas is in heaven being entertained by saints? Or is it because the proper time for mourning has come to an end? Either way, it takes most of the poem for the shepherds to stop crying their eyes out, which helps emphasize the importance of time in the mourning process.
