I conceived of an excellent solution for the incongruous fourth stanza of the “Autumn” poem only to discover—once I considered it in the context of the larger poem—that I had unwittingly created a new problem: its rhyming words shared their diphthongs (/uː/ in “through” and “view”) with those of the very next stanza (that in “dew” and “new”)! This is too overpowering a repetition in the overall structure, and I must now rethink the fourth stanza, once again!
