The alternation of consonants with vowels in the second stanza suggests drifting to and fro on the air.
  (Because consonants linguistically weigh more than vowels, the heavier, consonantal side indicates the direction of drift.)" (Dilworth 171)  The death of this leaf and the structure of the poem signify the theme of mortality.
  Also significant in the poem is the last line, "iness";  Thomas Dilworth proposes that this can be interpreted visually as "i-ness" suggestive of identity or aurally as "in-ness" indicative of introversion.

 History of Literacy: DANIEL FENNING (?-1767)
A New Guide to the English Tongue (London, 1740), which was already established, there were at least nine American editions of Fenning and it was still being printed in America as late as 1828.
Alston says that Fenning was "a tireless worker in the promotion of English language teaching in schools during his lifetime and produced a number of works (some elementary, some more advanced) which enjoyed immense popularity."
In spite of his prolific output, little has been known hitherto about Fenning himself, except that, like both Dilworth and Thomas Dyche, who wrote another spelling book that was imported from England, he was at some time a schoolmaster.
