  1. Read the following poem and do the activities that follow.

     Leisure

What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs,

And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,

Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,

Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,

And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can

Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

                                W.H. Davies

Dionysius, King of Syracuse in Sicily, was a great tyrant; and his enemies tried several times to murder him. Damocles was one of his courtiers; and he was always flattering the king, and saying : “How grand it must be to be a great king like you !” One day Dionysius said to him: “You shall be king for one night, as a reward for your Loyalty.”  Damocles was overjoyed; and that night sat in the king’s seat at the head of the table, above all the great lords, and dressed in the royal robes.

He felt very proud and happy; till, looking up, he saw to his horror, just over his head, a heavy sword hanging, point downwards, by a single thread.  This spoilt his dinner; and he was very glad when the feast was over.  Next day Dionysius asked him how he had enjoyed himself.  “Not at all,” replied Damocles; “I was all the time in terror of that dreadful sword falling on my head.” Now”, said Dionysius, smiling, “You know what it feels like to be a king.”

Read the following text and answer (Class 9 English Final Exam Questions)

My son Ryan was a typical 17 years old with a typical teenager’s enthusiasm for life.  He playedTennis and cricket and enjoyed any sport on TV.  Tall and lanky with an ever-present grin, he had a wonderful sense of humour.

About a week before school was due to resume; he wanted to spend a few days with a friend.  We agreed, but urged him to drive carefully.  “Don’t worry, Mom,” he said smiling, as he packed a bag and grabbed the car-keys.

At 3.20 p.m. Ryan lost control of the car on a bend.  Trying to avoid a pole, he spun the wheel furiously and the car somersaulted.  Police believe he was speeding.  Ryan was rushed to a hospital by helicopter.

We arrived just as he was being wheeled unconscious, into the emergency room with bandages around his head.  We were ushered to a waiting-room.  Then the nightmare began.

The first doctor’s words were a blur.  I heard something about the head injury, and the need for an immediate operation.  We waited and waited.  Finally a surgeon appeared.  Grim-faced, he shook his head, “Sorry, there’s no hope.”

When I looked at Ryan in intensive care, I thought my heart would break. My beloved, confident, athletic son was lying motionless on a bed.  His beautiful brown eyes were open but vacant, staring at the ceiling. We were shattered, and our hearts were broken.  We realized it was time to say good-bye.  Then at 4:00 a.m., nine days after the accident, when all was quiet with only Gray and me at his side, our son gently took his last breath.
