Your leaves, nor ever bid the Spring adieu;
And, happy melodist, unwearied,
For ever piping songs for ever new;

A. The word creates an abrasive tone that reflects the anger captured in the stanza. It isn't going to be A because this poem is clearly cheerful in its efforts of the givening a discription of spring.
B. The word creates a casual, informal tone that reflects the playfulness of the stanza. It is possible this might be it but This writing seems formal to a degree. so I am going to croos this out
C. The word creates a sorrowful tone that reflects what is happening in the stanza. This is definetly not it because this poem lacks any form of sorrow.
D. The word creates a grand, elevated tone that reflects the formality of the stanza. I have a strong feeling this is the answer because the word aediu is to a degree to us because I beilive it is french but I am not sure but this poem seems very formal and has grand writing and good adjatives.

"The Author to Her Book"
by Anne Bradstreet
Thou ill-formed offspring of my feeble brain,
Who after birth didst by my side remain,
Till snatched from thence by friends, less wise than true,
Who thee abroad, exposed to public view,
Made thee in rags, halting to th’ press to trudge,
Where errors were not lessened (all may judge).
At thy return my blushing was not small,
My rambling brat (in print) should mother call,
I cast thee by as one unfit for light,
The visage was so irksome in my sight;
Yet being mine own, at length affection would
Thy blemishes amend, if so I could.
I washed thy face, but more defects I saw,
And rubbing off a spot still made a flaw.
I stretched thy joints to make thee even feet,
Yet still thou run’st more hobbling than is meet;
In better dress to trim thee was my mind,
But nought save homespun cloth i’ th’ house I find.
In this array ‘mongst vulgars may’st thou roam.
In critic’s hands beware thou dost not come,
And take thy way where yet thou art not known;
If for thy father asked, say thou hadst none;
And for thy mother, she alas is poor,
Which caused her thus to send thee out of door.
