Beauty Poem: NCERT 6th CBSE Honeysuckle English Chapter 14

Beauty gives pleasure to all our senses. It can be noticed in the sunlight, the trees, the birds, the fields and the dancing groups. The people dance joyfully for their harvest.

Beauty can also be heard in the night when the wind makes a whistling sound the rain falls or some singer sings merrily.

True beauty, however, shows itself in our noble actions and good ideas. That beauty is repeated in one’s dreams and deeds, and even when one rests.

The poet says, “Beauty is heard in …”
Can you hear beauty? Add a sound that you think is beautiful to the sounds the poet thinks are beautiful.
The poet, Keats, said:
Heard melodies are Sweet,
But those unheard are sweeter.
What do you think this means? Have you ever heard a song in your head, long after the song was sung or played?

Аnswer: We find the melodious notes of the cuckoo or the nightingale very pleasing to the ears. But that pleasure is still incomplete. We have models of perfect beauty in our imagination. And we wait anxiously to hear our beloved’s voice and the chanting of prayers in holy places. We all look for perfection. A poetic phrase, idea or expression haunts us all through life.

Beauty Poem – Question: Read the first and the second stanzas of the poem again. Note the following phrases.

corn growing, people working or dancing, wind sighing,
rain falling, a singer chanting
These could be written as
corn that is growing
people who are working or dancing
Can you rewrite the other phrases like this? Why do you think the poet uses the shorter phrases?

Beauty Poem – Аnswer:

Yes, a few other phrases have been shortened in the poem.
For example, stream flowing, baby crying, etc.
I think the poet uses the shorter phrase for creating musical effect.

Beauty Poem – Question: Find pictures of beautiful things you have seen or heard of.

Аnswer: Each one of us has a different concept of beauty in physical form or in thoughts and ideas. Your experience may be different from your friend’s. So try to recall yourself beautiful scenes and sounds.

Question: Write a paragraph about beauty. Use your own ideas along with the ideas in the poem. (You may discuss your ideas with your partner.)

Аnswer: Our whole life is a mad search for beauty in different forms. Every fine art is a treasure house of beauty – be it dance, or poetry or sculpture. What the tribal people regard as beauty may look ugly to us. So beauty has as many forms as one can imagine. But nobody can fail to see beauty in good deeds, heroic actions, sweet voice and in nature.

Beauty Poem – Question: What is beauty? Where can, in the poet’s opinion, beauty be seen, heard and experienced?

Beauty Poem – Аnswer: It is difficult to describe or define beauty. But beauty attracts everybody and is appreciated all over the world. Where does beauty lie in? Well, it is visible in the sunlight, the trees, the birds, the crops and the harvesters who dance merrily. Beauty is heard in the night when the wind blows or rain falls or some singer Sings. But the real beauty lies in noble actions and thoughts at all times whether working or resting.
