‘The Schoolboy’ by William Blake (Unit-5 Lesson-3)
I love to rise in a summer morn,
When the birds sing on every tree;
The distant huntsman winds his horn,
And the sky-lark sings with me.
O! what sweet company.
But to go to school in a summer morn,
O! it drives all joy away;
Under a cruel eye outworn.
The little ones spend the day,
In sighing and dismay.
Ah! then at times I drooping sit,
And spend many an anxious hour,
Nor in my book can I take delight,
Nor sit in learnings bower,
Worn thro’ with the dreary shower.
How can the bird that is born for joy,
Sit in a cage and sing.
How can a child when fears annoy.
But droop his tender wing.
And forget his youthful spring.
O! father & mother. if buds are nip’d,
And blossoms blown away,
And if the tender plants are strip’d
Of their joy in the springing day,
By sorrow and care’s dismay.
How shall the summer arise in joy.
Or the summer fruits appear.
or how shall we gather what griefs destroy
The Schoolboy-HSC Theme Writing
Theme: The above poem ‘The School Boy’ by William Blake is an excellent criticism of existing unpleasant schooling system where there is no delight but spending weary hours. The child likes sweet companies of birds, trees, huntsmen and skylark’s songs. Like a bird or tender bud, his feelings should not be destroyed by cage-like school where care is absent. He pleads his parents if he is not treated like nature’s free agents, he can’t be adult enough to fight against the harsh realities of life.
