The poem The Sun RIisng by John Donne , the question is: Describe Donne's attitude to the sun in the opening four lines of this poem? How is this reaction established? the first four lines are: Busy old fool, unruly Sun, Why dost thou thus, Through windows, and through curtains, call on us? Must to thy motions lovers' seasons run? The teacher said I have to write half a page and add quotes. @Lurker

    okay to start off, it looks like he finds the sun a nuisance. He thinks it's butting into his life. It's pestering everyone, waking them up, forcing them to carry on with the new day. Making them face the flow of time. I am not too sure about the last line, but I think it has to do with flow of time, and how he wished time were to stay still, so he can enjoy being in love. Instead of time passing and wearing down the lovers' seasons. Or just the fact that time wont stay still and things are moving along is messing up the time of love? Sort of like how some people in love might with time were to just stay still...
