POEM AT A GLANCE

A snake came to the poet’s water trough.

The snake reached down from a crack in the earth-wall and came to the water-trough.

He slipped with his straight gums into his slake long body.

The poet came down the steps with the pitcher.

The poet realized that he must wait as the snake had come to the watertrough before him.

The snake lifted his head and looked at the poet as cattle do while drinking.

It was a very hot day of July and the snake had come from the ‘burning bowels of the earth.

The voice of his worldly education told him the yellow-brown snake was poisonous and must be killed.

The poet confessed that he liked the snake and thought him as his guest.

There is no doubt, that he feared the snake and couldn’t kill him.

Even so, the poet felt honoured that the snake had come to seek his hospitality.

The snake quenched his thirst and proceeded to go away.

He put his head into the dreadful black hole in the wall.

A sort of horror or protest overcame the poet.

He didn’t like the snake deliberately going back into that black hole.

He picked up a log of wood and threw at the snake.

The poet immediately regretted at his ‘vulgar’ and ‘mean’ act.

He was fascinated by the presence of the snake who seemed to him like a king.

He wanted to atone for his ‘pettiness’.

 

LITERARY DEVICES IN THE POEM

Similes

• He lifted his head from his drinking, as cattle do

•  And flickered his tongue like forked night on the air

•  Seemed to me again like a king.

 

Alliteration

 Strange-scented shade, slackness soft-belled down, sipped with his straight mouth, burning bowels

 And depart peaceful, pacified

 The dark door of the secret earth.

 To lick his lips

 Broken bank of my wall-face

 He put his head into that dreadful hole

 Put down my pitcher

 Softly drank through his straight gums, into his slack long body, silently
