The second one should add a second letter, but make sure it does not spell a complete word (an, be, is etc.) and pass it to the next. Each student should think and add a letter to help form a bigger and bigger word. The spelling of the word should not end when he/she adds a letter. If it does, he / she is out.

4 1.1 Life Glossary Words buoyant (adj) flit (v) lament (v) manfully (adv) oft (adv) quell (v) sway (n) transient (adj) Paraphrase 2 2 Meanings that can rise upward to fly lightly express grief or regret bravely archaic form of often end, suppress controllong influence temporary The poem Life, composed by Charlotte Bronte, conveys her personal thoughts about life. In these twenty-four lines, the poet has optimistically reversed pessimistic thoughts and attitude. In the beginning of the poem, she says that life is not as gloomy or as painful a dream as some wise men portray it to be. A few problems in the beginning should be taken as a sign of a pleasant path ahead. Sometimes, sadness or confusion may blur the clarity in our lives, but we should remember that, like the grey clouds in the sky, they do not stay for long. The poet then goes on to say that we should not feel sad when a rose falls because rain will make a new rose bloom. The blooming of a rose is a metaphor for gaining success in life. It is important to not get upset with failures as they are the stepping stones to our success. We should remember to pick ourselves up and move ahead. We should not forget to enjoy the small moments of joy and happiness when they pass by swiftly. The poet further says that even if we are consumed by grief over the loss of a loved one and sadness seems to engulf us, defeating all the hope around; we must try to remain optimistic. In the poem, hope is compared to a bird with golden wings, who has fallen, but has not been defeated. It still has wind in its bright wings and it can still steer us through all the sorrow and lead us to happiness. Hope is the strongest of all feelings that can get us through the worst trials of our lives. The poet concludes by saying that courage can supress pessimism and we can emerge victorious despite all obstacles that pull us down, if we hold on to hope in our lives. *1. There are many popular lines like : Life is a game play it well. Life is a journey keep going ahead. Discuss and write down a few such metaphorical lines about life. You can make them up yourselves. i. i iv. v. i. Life is a ball, so dance till you drop. Life is a stage and we all have our parts to play. i Life is a song, dance to it. iv. Life is a mirror and your actions are your reflection. v. Life is a melody play it well. *2. Prepare as many acrostics using the word LIFE, as you can. Two examples are given below. i. Live In Freedom Ever [You can turn it into a game, using a time-limit. Make sure your acrostics are related to life.] i. Listen Imbibe Feel Empathise Pre-reading Activities Liberty Integrity Fraternity Equality Lead Inspire Foster Empower [Note: The above answers are for reference.]

5 *3. Listen carefully and write the word in the appropriate column. Positive Feelings Negative Feelings hopeful, lonely, happy, jealous, surprised, shy, loving, proud, cheerful, anxious, nervous, excited, embarrassed, scared, silly, comfortable, peaceful, depressed, enthusiastic, motivated, inspired, threatened, crushed, angry Positive Feelings hopeful, happy, loving, cheerful, excited, comfortable, peaceful, enthusiastic, motivated, inspired, surprised Negative Feelings scared, lonely, jealous, shy, proud, anxious, nervous, embarrassed, silly, depressed, threatened, crushed, angry [Note: The above answers are for reference. Students can classify the words based on their views.] *4. It is possible to have both kinds of emotions (positive and negative feelings) at the same time. Have you experienced it? Try to describe the situation in short. It is quite true that at times our mind is equally occupied with both positive and negative feelings. I have this feeling often during my exams. I feel both nervous and excited when I start attempting a question paper. I think, I feel nervous because of the unpredictability of the questions and I feel excited because I get to test my knowledge.

6 Std. IX : English Kumarbharati 3. List the rhyming words from the extract. i. say day gloom bloom i merrily cheerily iv. by fly v. all fall 1. Do you think that keeping a positive attitude helps in dealing with problems in life? Explain. Yes, I think that keeping a positive attitude helps in dealing with problems in life. If we have a positive attitude, we are able to look at the brighter side of things. In the face of difficulties, being optimistic helps us to stay inspired and motivated. 1. Read the extract and match the following: 4 4 i. steps in a. buoyant elastic springs b. death i golden wings c. courage iv. quell despair d. hope (i b), (ii d), (iii a), (iv c) *1. What does our Best refer to? Our Best refers to our loved ones, including our parents, family members and friends. *2. Why are the wings of hope golden? The wings of hope are golden because they are bright and of exceptional value. The writer has used this expression to highlight the positive worth of hope. *3. Pick out from the extract, one line each that reflects an optimistic (positive) attitude and pessimistic (negative) attitude. Personal Response Extract I Extract II Read the extract from line 13 to 24 on page 3 of your textbook and answer the following questions. [ What though...quell despair! ] Simple Factual Reading Complex / Understanding Still buoyant are her golden wings, And calls our Best away? 4. Do you think the treatment of the poem is optimistic? Yes, the treatment of the poem is optimistic. Though the poet has used some expressions which sound pessimistic, the notion of hope recurs throughout the poem. In other words, we can say that the poet wants to optimistically deal with the negative experiences of life. The poet seems to believe in the idea that tomorrow is another day and rejects those notions which say that tomorrow never comes. *1. Give other -ly adverbs of similar meaning for the following from the extract. Use a thesaurus if needed. i. manfully fearlessly i gloriously iv. victoriously i. bravely boldly i charmingly iv. successfully 2. List the rhyming words from the extract. i. in win away sway i springs wings iv. fell well v. fearlessly-victoriously vi. bear despair 1. The poet describes hope as a strong bird with golden wings. How would you define hope? What are the things which give you hope? According to me, hope is an abstract idea or a thought, which makes us believe that something good will surely happen. It can help one in going through many torments in life. Hope can be in any form. I get hope from my friends, my parents and the books that I read. Sometimes, reading poems can make us feel hopeful too, for instance, this poem on hope can be a ray of hope to someone. *1. Pick out three examples of interrogation (rhetorical questions) from the poem. Explain in your own words the point that each one makes. i. i Vocabulary Personal Response Appreciation of the Poem Interrogation Explanation

7 Interrogation i. If the shower will make the rose bloom Oh, why lament its fall? i What though death at times steps in, And calls our Best away? What though Sorrow seems to win, O er hope a heavy sway? Explanation One should not weep over the loss of a flower when rain can make another one bloom. We should not lose hope even if death takes away our dear ones far from us. We should not worry even if sorrow defeats hope because hope has the potential to rise up again. *2. And calls our Best away? is a gentle way of expressing the unpleasant idea of a loved one dying. It is an example of euphemism. Think and write down three or four ways in which we can express the idea of death in a tactful and gentle manner. i. i iv. i. at peace angels carried him or her i the passing of iv. faded away *3. Pick out four examples of personification. Write what is personified in each: i. i iv. i. What though death at times steps in, personification: death is personified Activities Reading Chapter 1.1: Life *1. Read: The Psalm of Life a poem by H.W. Longfellow. [Students are expected to attempt the above activity on their own.] Writing *1.... and that s how I realised that courage and hope can help me overcome any major mishap / problem in life. Write an episode / experience from your own life that leads to the above conclusion. When I was in eighth standard I fell off the roof of my house and broke my right hand. I got a permanent cast for two months, however, my exams were just around the corner. A writer was assigned to me, so that I could appear for my exams. I was uncomfortable with the idea of a writer writing whatever I would dictate to him / her. My parents and school teachers kept on encouraging me. I did not let the accident affect my studies. I prepared well and appeared for the exams. After two months, when the result was out I was pleasantly surprised to see that I passed the exams with flying colours and that s how I realised that courage and hope can help me overcome problems in life. i iv. What though Sorrow seems to win, personification: sorrow is personified Yet Hope again elastic springs, Unconquered, though she fell, personification: hope is personified For gloriously, victoriously, Can courage quell despair! personification: courage is personified 5
