Unseen Poem for Class 7 – Poem 1

Fame is a food that dead men eat,

I have no stomach for such meat.

Advertisements

In little light and narrow rooms,

They eat in the silent tomb.

With no kind voice of comrade near To bid the feaster be of cheer.

But friendship is a noble thing,

Of friendship, it is good to sing. •

For truly when a man shall end,

He lives in memory of his friend,

Who doth his better part recall,

And of his fault make the funeral.

—Henry Austin Dobson

Unseen Poem for Class 7 – Poem 2

The World

Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World,

With the wonderful water around you curled,

And the wonderful grass upon your breast—

World, you are beautifully dressed.

The wonderful air is over me,

And the wonderful wind is shaking the tree,

It walks on the water, and whirls the mills,

And talks to itself on the tops of the hills.

You friendly Earth, how far do you go,

With the wheat fields that nod and the rivers that flow,

With cities and gardens, and cliffs, and isles,

And people upon you for thousands of miles?

Ah! you are so great, and I am so small,

I tremble to think of you, World, at all;

And yet, when I said my prayers today,

A whisper inside me seemed to say,

You are more than the Earth, though you are such a dot:

You can love and think, and the Earth cannot!’

—W.B.Rands

Unseen Poem for Class 7 – Poem 3

Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village though;

He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake on The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake.

The only other sound’s the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep.

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

Unseen Poem for Class 7 – Poem 4

Sympathy

I lay in sorrow and deep distress;

My grief a proud man heard,

His looks were cold, he gave me gold,

But not a kindly word.

My sorrow passed I paid him back The gold he gave to me,

Then stood erect and spoke my thanks And blessed his charity.

I lay in want and grief, and pain A poor man passed my way He bound my head, he gave me bread;

He watched me night and day;

How shall I pay him back again For all he did to me?

Oh, gold is great, but greater far Is heavenly sympathy.
