The tone of this poem would change twice in the poem. at the beginning, the poem would have a humourous tone due to the over exaggeration of the boy's physical features. "with eyes as wide as a football pool......"

later on, it takes on a more depressing tone as the author reveals the situation the boy is in. 

most readers will symphathise with timothy at the end of the poem due to his selflessness.
