"All's changed since..."   (The Wild Swans at Coole)

The statement “[a]ll’s changed” suggests that there are two versions of the speaker: the young, innocent speaker before he saw the birds, and the weary, experienced speaker after he saw the birds. These two versions of the speaker cast the tone of the poem as a wistful longing for a time past.
