First a warning, musical; then the hour, irrevocable. The leaden circles dissolved in the air.
About This Quote
The speaker in this poem mentions that it is time for the hour, that is the time to be irrevocable. The reader then should realize that they should not be thinking about whether or not to take this decision. It is the only way that the reader will get past this stage of indecision. When you are faced with a decision, there are two ways to go about it, either you can decide to go down the right path or you can decide to go down the wrong path. Then, you can decide if you want to do anything about it or not.
