\\Answer To A Child's Question. //

Answer to a child's question.
By Coleridge, Samuel Taylor .

Posted by Hello

Do you ask what the birds say? The Sparrow, and the Dove,
The Linnet and Thrush say, 'I love and I love!'
In the winter they're silent - the wind is so strong;
What it says, I don't know, but it sings a loud song.
But green leaves, and blossoms, and sunny warm weather,
And singing, and loving - all come back together.
But the Lark is so brimful of gladness and love,
The green fields below him, the blue sky above,
That he sings, and he sings; and for ever sings he -
'I love my Love, and my Love loves me!'

This is one of the shortest poem written by Coleridge. A long prose written by him is "The Ancient Mariner" which takes up about 19 pages of A4 paper. I had to go through the process of reading the prose in my school days, during the year when I was in the 'O' Level year, the year I was taking the Cambridge School Certificate, back in 1960. The language is very difficult, as old English are used as well as it being written in a poetic language. But the Master who taught us the prose was very patient about it, sometimes he could only explain 1 word in a ½ hour lesson period, and normally this only happens once a week. But somehow he managed to make us understood the prose, thank you Onn Cheng Orr.
