He is still aware of the sculpted frieze, but its pastoral scenes now stand in metonymically for the urn, the "Cold Pastoral." He has extricated himself from his absorption in the world of the urn's relief and resumes the odic invocations of the first stanza, even venturing the odic "O." But now he is on different temps with the urn.
The odic attitude which has up to now constituted the poem as an address and encounter, with the speaker invoking, questioning, and empathizing, is displaced by the authoritative stance in which the urn shows disdain for the speaker's previous interests and enquiries and overrules them with the instruction of what mankind needs to know.
Instead of being firmly anchored in an authority invoked, the poem disintegrates into a kaleidoscope of fragmented appeals: "ye soft pipes," "fair youth," "bold Lover," "Happy, happy boughs," "happy melodist," "happy love," "little town"--each of these apostrophes simulates the opening of an ode, producing a welter of little odic attempts.
