What is the effect of the refrain 'I know what/why the caged bird...'?(From the chapter-sympathy by Paul Laurence Dubar

Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

The refrain is used for the purpose of repetition and to show how well the poet has understood the pain of the caged bird. The refrain is used to convince the reader also about the sad plight of the caged bird.
