Quote #4

But once again, before you go, (line 51)

You feel that backward pull again?  The Old Year has been trying to get out of here for the whole poem, but our speaker just won't let him!  It's like being stuck in a conversation where the other person keeps saying: "Oh, and one more thing…"  It's as if he doesn't really want the year to be over at all.  The focus remains on the past the entire time.
