1. (a) But for to tellen yow of his array, 10
His hors were gode, but he was not gay.
Of fustian he weved a gipoun,
Al bismotered with his habergeoun;
For he was late y-come from his viage,
And wente for to doon his pilgrimage.

Having a glass of blessings standing by ;

In stygian cave forlorn

Fed the same flock, by fountain, shade, and

Dare frame thy fearful symmetry ?

OR

(b) No familiar shapes 10
Remained, no pleasant images of trees,
of sea or sky, no colours of green fields ;
But huge and mighty forms that do not live,
Like living men moved slowly through the
mind
By day, and were a trouble to my dreams.

7. (a) 'Whence I am, I partly seem to know, 10
And how and by what paths
I have been brought
To this dread pass, methink

Why this should be, my mind

Savour of poisonous brass and metal sick :

Fire rankles at the heart of every globe ?

You need not clap your torches to my face.

Was there another Troy for her to burn ?

OR

(b) Gang was sunken, and the limp leaves 10
Waited for rain, while the black clouds
Gathered far distant, over Himavant.

10. (a) I never ran to when I got depressed. 10
The boys all biceps and the girls all chest,
Their comic Ford, their farm where I could
be
'Really myself'.

Any more, black shoe
In which 1 have lived like a foot
For thirty years.
