Unseen Poem for Class 7 – Poem 1

The lotus in its beauty and brilliance smiles
And dares the sun
To whom it compares its shape and shine.
“Thou hast not my tenderness,
Thou hast not my fragrance,” it says.
The sun just glares
And utters not a word.
Either of censure or of praise !
The poor black mud
Nourishing the roots
With soft cool protective touch
Keeps silent too.
It is beyond compare
To either the lotus or the sun
Nor recognition does it crave !
Let the world rave and revile
At the vile stench of mud;
The mud knows the Dark Reality
It just wants to Be !
It just wants to Be !

Fame is a food that dead men eat,

Unseen Poem for Class 7 Worksheet – Poem 4

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to Earth, I knew not where ;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where ;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroken ;
And the song, from the beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.

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,

Unseen Poem for Class 7 CBSE – Poem 6

I saw you hide your hands in line
behind that lady fair,
I noticed too, hers soft and white‐
Immaculate from care.
But Ma, I say, it’s no disgrace
to have workin’ hands like you,
and had she lived the life you have,
she’d have hands just like it too.
But her hands have never hauled in wood,
or worked in God’s good earth.
They’ve probably never patched blue jeans,
or had worn ol’ socks to darn.
They’ve never scrubbed a kitchen floor,
Or done dishes everyday.
They’ve never guided with those hands
a child who’s lost the way.
So you see, my dearest Mamayours
are hands of love.
And I bet the Lord will notice
when he greets you from above.
