Hi all, I hope you can help me. I'm translating this Tawara Machi song for a paper I'm working on and I'm not 100% sure about the meaning of the sentence ending:
母と焼くパンのにおいの香ばしき真夏真昼の記憶閉ざさん

What is the meaning of the ん suffix at the end of the song? is it a negative form of the verb or something else?
Thank you!

ん is a classical auxiliary verb for volition/presumption in that case, equivalent to う/よう in modern Japanese.

閉ざさん = 閉ざそう
