Elective Course in English-01 (EEG-01)/(BEGE-101)

1 Read the following poem by Rabindranath Tagore and answer the questions given below it.

In the russet dawn, a young maid you came smiling

Donning a white robe, freshly bathed

In the shining rays of the dawn.

You would show your face

Beaming like a full-grown flower,

Just at my break of day—you would drag me away

To the garden for gathering Shefali flowers.

Times without number you lured me away

From my childhood duties

Throwing away my books,

And snatching my chalk from me.

You would release me from the prison of my school

And lead me, through secret alleys,

To a solitary place that was a mystic chamber

On an empty roof under the sky.

How you used to play

Beguiling me with your varied tales.

That was as enchanting

And yet as meaningless as dreams

You alone knew whether they were true or untrue

 

A pair of pearls used to swing from your ears,

There were gold bracelets on your two hands,

Your locks touched your two cheeks playfully,

From your two limpid eyes shimmered rays of light

Like the shattered beams in a transparent brook.

Even before we knew each other well

In care-free confidence,

So often we played and romped together

Babbling—our cloths to complete disarray.

 

Then one day, I was not so aware

When in the garden of life

The southern wind first blew its scented breath

In the spring of my youth;

A hundred new desires were blossoming,

I was startled by my own music,

I was surprised to find you, the goddess

Of my inner heart, make your advent

Into my inner world, straight from the play-ground

And you were now sitting in majesty

Like a queen in your ante-chamber.
