  4. The poet handed the paper to his servant.
He took the paper, and I watched,
And saw him peep within
At first line he read, his face
Was all upon the grin
He read the next; the grin grew broad
And shot from ear to ear;
He read the third; a chuckling noise
I now began to hear.
The fourth; he began to roar.
The fifth; his waistband split;
The sixth; he burst five buttons And tumbled in a fit.
Ten days and nights, with sleepless eyes,
I watched that wretched man,
And since, I never dare to write
As funny as I can.

Set 1 | Q 2

Read the following poem and write an appreciation of it with the help of the given points in a paragraph format:

Animals

I think I could turn and live with animals, they are
     so placid and self-containe'd
I stand and look at them long and long.
  They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with
     the mania of owning things.
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that
lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.
So they show their relations to me and I accept them,
They bring me tokens of myself, they evince
them plainly in their possession
I wonder where they get those tokens,
Did I pass that way huge times ago and negligently drop
them?
                                                             - Walt Whitman

With candles and with lanterns

they searched for him; he was not found.
they clicked their tongues.
With every movement that the scorpion made his poison
moved in Mother’s blood, they said.

May he sit still, they said
May the sins of your previous birth
be burned away tonight, they said.

Where the Mind is Without Fear...

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
       Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
       By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
       Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
       Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by Thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
       Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

- Rabindranath Tagore
