Niemoller use's short-precise words to give his tone more of a depressing and reflective feel. Contradictory to Niemoller, Scott Simon's, " SEVEN DECADES ON," use a different type of sentence structure in his style to contribute to his tone.

This is a modern view of love compared to the perceptions of it in the sixteenth century. Whereas, in ‘Sonnet 18,’ the language is lyrical and classically poetic, the language here is disjointed, does not rhyme or even want to rhyme. The narrator in Walcott’s poem is only addressing himself so the language doesn’t have to follow a pattern to be understood by another as in Shakespeare’s poem. The contrasting structure of both poems reflects the different times that they are written. The poet addresses the reader using sharp, straight directives (“Sit.” “Eat.”); this captures a harsh tone and mood.

Another formatting technique [?] is the use of enjambment every other line, “If you can keep your head when all about you | | Are losing their and blaming it on you”.
