Why the poet has particularly referred aunt Jennifer as 'Aunt' in the last paragraph and not Jennifer ?
"When Aunt is dead, her terrified hads will lie
Still ringed with ordeals she was mastered by.
The tigers in the panel that she made
Will go on prancing, proud and unafraid."

Dear student,

The poet has addressed her as Aunt to make the reader aware of her old age and to emphasise on the fact that she is as old as an aunt. Moreover, the poet is talking about what would life be like after her death, where she would only be an Aunt and not Jennifer, she would loose her identity.
