    Please help!--Poetry Tone Map?

    Can someone help me with the tone for this poetry? I am not good with poetry at all. I need analysis of tone for each line of the poem. For example, the tone for one line could be wistful or something like that.

    A BOAT beneath a sunny sky,
    Lingering onward dreamily
    In an evening of July —

    Children three that nestle near,
    Eager eye and willing ear,
    Pleased a simple tale to hear —

    Long has paled that sunny sky:
    Echoes fade and memories die:
    Autumn frosts have slain July.

    Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
    Alice moving under skies
    Never seen by waking eyes.

    Children yet, the tale to hear,
    Eager eye and willing ear,
    Lovingly shall nestle near.

    In a Wonderland they lie,
    Dreaming as the days go by,
    Dreaming as the summers die:

    Ever drifting down the stream —
    Lingering in the golden gleam —
    Life, what is it but a dream?

    Tone Map for A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky

    I'm reciting this poem at school and I did a tone map as well. I did it by stanzas instead though. Maybe it will help you with figuring out what to do for each line.
    Stanza 1: Reminiscing;Dreamy. Stanza 2: Peaceful; Giddy Stanza 3: Hollow; Tired Stanza 4: Solemn, Somber, Sentimental Stanza 5: Giddy; Peaceful
    Stanza 6: Sad; Tired Stanza 7: Questioning; Uncertain
