Cloud Backed

Read the poem given below carefully.

  1. The cloud-backed heron will not move:

He stares into the stream.

 He stands unfaltering while the gulls

 And oyster-catchers scream.

 He does not hear, he cannot see

 The great white horses of the sea,

 But fixes eyes on stillness

Below their flying team.

  1. How long will he remain, how long

Have the grey woods been green?

 The sky and the reflected sky

Their glass he has not seen,

 But silent as a speck of sand

Interpreting the sea and land,

 His fall pulls down the fabric

Of all that windy scene.

  1. Sailing with clouds and woods behind

Pausing in leisured flight,

 He stepped, alighting on a stone,

Dropped from the stars of the night.

 He stood there unconcerned with the day,

 Deaf to the tumult of the bay,

Watching a stone in water,

 A fish’s hidden light.

  1. Sharp rocks drive back the breaking waves

Confusing sea with air.

Bundles of spray blown mountain-high

 Have left the shingle bare.

A shipwrecked anchor wedged by rocks,

 Loosed by the thundering equinox,

Divides the herded waters,

The stallion and his mare.

  1. Yet no distraction breaks the watch

 Of that time-killing bird.

 He stands unmoving on the stone;

 Since dawn, he has not stirred.

Calamity about him cries,

 But he has fixed his golden eyes

On water’s crooked tablet,

On light’s reflected word.

Vernon Watkins

Dream

Read the following poem and answer the questions that follow.

I DREAMED that as I wandered by the way

 Bare winter suddenly was changed to Spring,

And gentle odours led my steps astray,

 Mix’d with a sound of waters murmuring

 Along with a shelving bank of turf, which lay5

Under a corpse, and hardly dared to fling

 Its green arms round the bosom of the stream,

But kissed it and then fled, as Thou mightest in the dream.

There grew pied wind-flowers and violets.

Daisies, that pearled Arcturi of the earth,                                                                     

The constellated flower that never sets;

Faint oxlips; tender bluebells, at whose birth

The sod scarce heaved; and that tall flower that wets—

Like a child, half in tenderness and mirth—

Its mother’s face with heaven-collected tears.                                                                 

When the low wind, its playmate’s voice, it hears.

And in the warm hedge grew lush eglantine,

Green cow-bind and the moonlight-coloured May,

And cherry-blossoms, and white cups, whose wine

Was the bright dew yet drained not by the day;                                                                  

 And wild roses, and ivy serpentine

With its dark buds and leaves, wandering astray;

And flowers azure, black, and streaked with gold,

 Fairer than any waken’ eyes behold.

And nearer to the river’s trembling edge

There grew broad flag-flowers, purple pranked with white,

And starry river buds among the sedge,

And floating water-lilies, broad and bright,

Which lit the oak that overhung the hedge

With moonlight beams of their own watery light;

And bulrushes, and reeds of such deep green                                                                       

 As soothed the dazzled eye with sober sheen.

I thought that of these visionary flowers

I made a nosegay, bound in such a way

That the same hues, which in their natural bowers

 Were mingled or opposed, the like array                                                                                

Kept these imprisoned children of the Hours

 Within my hand,—and then, elate and gay,

 I hastened to the spot whence I had come

That I might their present it—O! to Whom?

                              —P.B. Shelley                                                                          

 (I) On the basis of your understanding of the poem answer the following questions with the help of the given options:
