I wanted to find out a bit more about the meaning of the poem, as I found it hard to fully understand the meaning of it. I started off by researching the nursery rhyme to see if there was a correlation, or if I could understand the meaning better. Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday, Christened on a stark and stormy Tuesday, Married on a grey and grisly Wednesday, Took ill on a mild and mellow Thursday, Grew worse on a bright and breezy Friday, Died on a gray and glorious Saturday, Buried on a baking, blistering Sunday. That was the end of Solomon Grundy. The poem by Alice Oswald has similarities to the original nursery rhyme, however is opposite in someway. The nursery rhyme also talks about Solomon Grundy, but goes through his life timeline, and ends on a bit of a darker note.
DC Comics. That was the end Of Solomon Grundy. The rhyme has not changed in the intervening years. It seems Solomon Grundy is a compelling character; the name was used for a zombie supervillain in DC Comics, first introduced as an adversary of the Green Lantern in The rhyme has also been used as in a number of popular music songs, either as a basis for adaptation or a direct quotation. What marks it as a rhyme collected during that period is the morbid fascination with death as part of the calendrical round.
