(2) What though Death at times steps in, And calls our Best away?

The poet tells us that sometimes death which is inevitable may take our loved ones away, so it is okay and we should accept it as a part of our lives.

(3) What though Sorrow seems to win, O'er hopes a heavy sway?

The poet tells us that sometimes sorrow takes over all other happy things and thus has a negative influence on our hope, so we should accept the situation just as we accept happiness in our lives.

‘..... and that’s how I realized 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.


SOLUTION

Once on a Sunday afternoon, I was held at gunpoint on the comer of the road behind a tree. I saw a man walking by but couldn't utter a word as the young man standing behind me twisting my arm had threatened to kill me if I shouted for help. At that very moment, I thought my life was over but I wasn't going to give up hope.

            This happened when I was on my way to my friend's house. I had sensed that someone was following me. But, in spite of checking twice, I did not notice anyone. Then suddenly this young man wearing fairly decent clothes pulled me behind a tree and said, "I know your father has won a lottery. Call him and tell him that you are kidnapped ... ". I had a plan, I stopped him halfway and said, "You are mistaken. My father didn't win any lottery."

           The young man seemed confused when he heard this. He pulled me in front of him and said angrily, "I'm no fool... " I was waiting for that moment, as I was confident of my two years of karate training, I kicked the gun from the man's hand, two more blows and in a couple of seconds, he lay flat on the roadside. I quickly shouted for help, a few people gathered around me and called the police and that's how I realized that courage and hope can help me overcome any major mishap/problem in life.

Read: ‘The Psalm of Life’- a poem by H. W. Longfellow.


SOLUTION

A Psalm of Life

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

What The Heart Of The Young Man Said To; The Psalmist.

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,

Life is but an empty dream!

For the soul is dead that slumbers

And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!

And the grave is not its goal;

Dust thou art, to dust returnest,

Was not spoken of the soul.

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,

Is our destined end or way;

But to act, that each to-morrow

Find us farther than to-day.

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,

And our hearts, though stout and brave,

Still, like muffled drums, are beating

Funeral marches to the grave.

In the world's broad field of battle,

In the bivouac of Life,

Be not like dumb, driven cattle!

Be a hero in the strife!

Trust no Future, however pleasant!

Let the dead Past bury its dead!

Act,- act in the living Present!

Heart within, and God overhead!

Lives of great men all remind us

We can make our lives sublime,

And, departing, leave behind us

Footprints on the sands of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another,

Sailing o'er life's solemn main,

A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,

Seeing shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,

With a heart for any fate;

Still achieving, still pursuing,

Learn to labour and to wait.
