SECTION - A
(Reading - 20 Marks)
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,
'THAT FELLOW'S GOT TO SWING'.
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.
