FORBEARANCE
RALPH WALDO EMERSON

Hast thou named all the birds without a gun?
Loved the wood-rose, and left it on its stalk?
At rich men's tables eaten bread and pulse?
Unarmed, faced danger with a heart of trust?
And loved so well a high behavior,
In man or maid, that thou from speech refrained,
Nobility more nobly to repay?
Oh, be my friend, and teach me to be thine !

NOTES AND QUESTIONS
Biography
. Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) was a native of Boston, born not far from Franklin's birthplace; and he lived most of his life in Concord, near Boston. Emerson was a quiet boy, but that he had high ambitions and sturdy determination is shown by the fact that he worked his way through college. He is best known for his essays, full of noble ideas which won for him the title "Sage of Concord." As a poet, he was not particular about meter, making his lines often purposely rugged but always full of thought. His poems of nature are as clear-cut and vivid as snapshots.
Discussion. 1. Which one of these five examples of forbearance do you think most difficult to practice? 2. Why should we protect birds and flowers? What society has for its purpose the protection of birds? 3. What feeling similar to that described in the fifth example have you experienced in greeting a hero from the World War? 4. Which do most people prefer in daily life-appreciation that is expressed, or silent appreciation? 5. What two words are sharply contrasted in the second line? 6. Read the poem aloud to bring out all the contrasts. 7. What word shows that Emerson feels that he does not possess all of these qualities? 8. How does he express his admiration for the person who does possess them? 9. Find in the Glossary the meaning of: forbearance; wood-rose; pulse; high; behavior. 10. Pronounce : stalk.
