I took a stroll down Cypress Street
The hot sidewalk beneath my feet.
The one thing that stood out the most
Where trees once stood there were lamppost.
I‟d never seen so much concrete
No Cypress left on Cypress Street.
According to my Great Aunt Gem
There used to be a lot of them.
They cut them down. They took their wood
A treeless street is plum no good!
Just like a treeless neighborhood
So tell the Mayor next time they meet…
To change the name to Lamppost Street!

Unseen Poem for Class 6 with MCQ – Poem 2

Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World,
With the wonderful water round you curled,
And the wonderful grass upon your breast—
World, you are beautifully drest.
The wonderful air is over me,
And the wonderful wind is shaking the tree,
It walks on the water, and whirls the mills,
And talks to itself on the tops of the hills.
You friendly Earth, how far do you go,
With the wheat-fields that nod and the rivers that flow,
With cities and gardens, and cliffs, and isles,
And people upon you for thousands of miles?
Ah! you are so great, and I am so small,
I tremble to think of you, World, at all;
And yet, when I said my prayers to-day,
A whisper inside me seemed to say,
‘You are more than the Earth, though you are such a dot:
You can love and think, and the Earth cannot!’

O say, what is that thing called light,
Which I can never enjoy?
What is the blessing of the sight?
O tell your poor blind boy!

You say the sun shines bright;
I feel him warm, but how can he
Then make it day or night?
My day or night myself I make
Whenever I sleep or play;
And could I ever keep awake
With me it were always day
With heavy sighs I often hear
You mourn my hapless woe;
But sure with patience I may bear
A loss I never can know
Then let not what I cannot have
My cheer of mind destroy;
whilst things I sing, I am a king
Although a poor blind boy

He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods filled up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farm-house near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Unseen Poem ICSE – Poem 5

If you’ve tried and have not won,
Never stop for crying;
All that’s good and great is done
Just by patient trying.

Though young birds, in flying, fall,
Still their wings grow stronger,
And the next time they can keep
Up a little longer.

Though the sturdy oak has known
Many a wind that bowed her,
She has risen again and grown
Loftier and prouder.

Who the more will prize you?
Gaining victory from defeat,
That’s the test that tries you.
