Poems English 6th - Tulip Series

Poem 1: Beauty (E. Yeh Shure)
Beauty is seen
In the sunlight,
The trees, the birds,
Corn growing and people working
Or dancing for their harvest.
Beauty is heard
In the night,
Wind sighing, rain falling,
Or a singer chanting
Anything in earnest.
Beauty is in yourself.
Good deeds, happy thoughts
That repeat themselves
In your dreams,
In your work,
And even in your rest

THINKING ABOUT THE POEM
Q1. The poet says, “Beauty is heard in….”
Can you hear beauty? Add a sound that you think is beautiful to the sounds the poet thinks are beautiful.
The poet, John Keats, says:
Heard melodies are sweet,
But those unheard are sweeter.
What do you think this means? Have you ever ‘heard’ a song in your head long after the song was sung or played?
Ans. Beauty is heard in the form of sounds. Beautiful sounds make people happy. The trickling of water, chirping of birds, tunes of the flute are some of the beautiful sounds that we hear.
The poet, John Keats means to say that some heard melodies are sweet because they have been heard and are known to us but unheard melodies are sweeter because they are in our imagination and we are curious to these sounds. Some songs that have been sung or played are still heard.

Q2. Read the first and second stanzas of the poem again. Note the following phrases:
Corn growing, people working or dancing, wind sighing, rain falling, a singer chanting
These could be written as
·         Corn that is growing
·         People who are working or dancing
Can you rewrite other phrases like this? Why do you think the poet uses shorter phrases?
Ans. Corn growing – Corn that is growing.
People working or dancing – People who are working or dancing.
Wind sighing – The wind that is sighing.
Rain falling – The rain that is falling.
A singer chanting – A singer who is chanting or singing.
Good deeds – Deeds or acts that are good.
Happy thoughts – Thoughts that are happy.

Q3. Find pictures of beautiful things, you have seen or heard of.
Ans. I have seen pictures of flowers, trees, birds, some wild animals, landscapes, forests, waterfalls, etc.
Q4. Write a paragraph on beauty. Use your own ideas along with the ideas in the poem. (You may discuss your ideas with your partner.)-
Ans. Beauty is a quality that attracts people, that makes people happy, that is praised or admired. Beauty does not lie in the facer's external physical structure. Beauty lies in the character. The flower is beautiful because of its fragrance and smooth touch. The thorn beneath the flower is always hated. A person is beautiful by his good deeds, his way of talking, his attitude, behaviour.
A sound is beautiful, when it gives comfort, makes happy and pleases people. Beauty lies in unity when people help each other. Beauty lies in kindness, sympathy, and nobleness. We should always be beautiful by heart, by eyes, by character, behaviour, attitude, so that no one is hurt due to us.
