B.These techniques synthesize the meaning of the seasons and nighttime. C.These techniques reverse the attitude of the poem toward nighttime.

    Why do you think it is A?

    Because " tone from one of awe to one of delight." "The summer hath his joys, And winter his delights" starts out in the season(s) then as the season (winter or summer) progress it goes from first experiencing the "awe" of the season to the complete delight of the season. That's my theory at least.

    What combination of elements helps portray the pleasures of winter in these lines from the poem? Now yellow waxen lights Shall wait on honey love The word choice, sound, and imagery emphasize gentleness. The “waxen lights” contrast with the sweetness of “honey love.” The references to golden colors echo the comforts of winter. The rhythm creates a sense of languor characteristic of winter.

    I would say B. A and B sound good, but B explains alittle more.
