Answer :

The poet watches the pale and waned face of her mother and is reminded of the upcoming adversities old age that is growing to engulf the mother. For the poet, old age is naturally dull, monotonous, inanimate stage of life which ultimately follows to death. Thus, she feels the advent of death nearing her mother. She is not prepared to think of losing her mother to death, which is the only association she derives from old age. Thus, she is contemptuous to death which is a natural and spontaneous process in everyone’s life. She has not acquired the sensibility and alternative perspective of the American poet Emily Dickinson who treats death as a friend in “Because I Could Not Stop for Death”.
