1.Read the poem given below   :

He did not wear his  scarlet coat, For blood and wine are red,

And blood  and wine were on his  hands When they found him with  the dead, The poor dead woman whom 

he loved, And murdered in her bed.

He walked amongst the Trial Men

In a suit of shabby grey;

A cricket cap was on his  head,

And his step seemed light and gay; But I never saw a man who looked So wistfully  at the day.

I never saw a man who looked

With such a wistful  eye Upon that little tent of blue Which  prisoners call  the sky,

And at every drifting cloud  that went

With sails of silver by.

I walked, with  other souls in pain, Within another ring,

And was wondering  if the man had done

A great or little thing

When  a voice behind me whispered low,


Dear Christ! the very prison wallsSuddenly seemed to reel,And the sky above my head became Like a casque of scorching steel; And,  though I was a soul in pain, My pain I could not feel.

I only knew what hunted thoughtQuickened his  step, and why He looked upon the garish day With such a wistful  eye;The man had killed the thing he loved,And so he had to die.
