5. Write down the theme of the following poem. (Not more than 50 words)
Because I have seen BengalÕs face I will seek no more;
The world has not anything more beautiful to show me.
Waking up in darkness, gazing at the fig-tree, I behold
DawnÕs swallows roosting under huge umbrella-like leaves. I look around me
And discover a leafy dome-Jam, Kanthal, Bat, Hijol and Aswatha trees-
All in a hush, shadowing clumps of cactus and zedoary bushes.
When long, long ago, Chand came in his honeycombed boat
To a blue Hijal, Bat and Tamal shade near the Champa, he too sighted
BengalÕs incomparable beauty. One day, alas. In the Ganguri,
On a raft, as the waning moon sank on the riverÕs sandbanks,
Behula too saw countless aswaths bats besides golden rice fields
And heard the thrushÕs soft song. One day, arriving in Amara,
Where gods held court, when she danced like a desolate wagtail,
BengalÕs rivers, fields, flowers, wailed like strings of bells on her feet.

All people dream, but not equally.

Wake in the morning to find that it was vanity.
But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people,
For they dream their dreams with open eyes,
And make them come true.

Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

8. Write down the theme of the following poem. (Not more than 50 words)
I will arise and go now and go to Inn is free,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee
And live alone in the bee loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
