The long and short, as I percieve it, is that a person may not be
all-responsible for their behavior, because the circumstances surrounding
their behavior may have been out of their control. The speaker may be
presented one way (sinful, or having only sin) toward the man, but the poem
says that once the man has seen that all the speaker's wares are sinfuil,
the man THEN viewed the speaker with kinder eyes, and said, "poor soul!" as
if he had a newfelt pity or compassion for the speaker. He may not have
had the same feeling toward the speaker if it were his fault that all his
wares were of sin.
