D. Resolution
 
 
NOT A. because... The climax of the poem is paragraph 4 where the bride concedes to marry Lochinvar when, "She look'd down to blush, and she look'd up to sigh,
With a smile on her lips and a tear in her eye."
 
 
NOT B. because... The poem begins by defining the character of Lochinvar and exposing the triumphs  and shortcomings of the valiant knight. 
For a laggard in love, and a dastard in war [...]
 
 
NOT C. because... The action rises when Lochinvar awaits at Ellen's gate for her father's remarks:
"O come ye in peace here, or come ye in war,
Or to dance at our bridal, young Lord Lochinvar?"
