wonderful world
Great ,wide ,beautiful ,wonderful world, •
With the wonderful water around you •
And the wonderful grass on your beast- •
World, you are beautifully dressed. •
Ah, you bare so great and I am so small •
I tremble to think of you , world, at al, •
And yet when I said my prayers to-day •
A whisper inside me seemed to say •
“you are more than Earth, thought you •
are such a dot:
You can love and think, and the earth •
: covered with – wrapped up •
: chest •
: to shake with excitement •
: a soft voice •
: very small point •
: very large - broad •
In this poem the poet is an admired of the •
world and it’s beauty . He says that the
world is so big, so great & beautiful . he
believes that the world is a fine place. The
poet describes the fine world as a person,
and as a people are wrapped up in clothes,
so the world which is wrapped up in
wonderful grass , green fields and valleys
In the second part, starting from line 7,
however the idea is changed. The poet
compares between him self and the world.
At first, he admits that he is so small
compared to the world. But while praying
he hears a whisper that tells him that Man
is much more important than the world as
Man has which does not exist in the world
man can think and love but the world
cannot. This idea is summed up in the last
two lines “you are more than earth,
thought you are such a dot, you con love and
think but the earth cannot !”
