Use this material to answer questions #4 through #6

Behold her, single in the field,

Yon solitary Highland Lass!

Reaping and singing by herself;

Stop here, or gently pass!

Alone she cuts, and binds the grain,

And sings a melancholy strain;

O listen! for the Vale profound

Is overflowing with the sound.


No Nightingale did ever chaunt

So sweetly to reposing bands

Of Travellers in some shady haunt,

Among Arabian Sands:

No sweeter voice was ever heard

In spring-time from the Cuckoo-bird,

Breaking the silence of the seas

Among the farthest Hebrides.


Will no one tell me what she sings?

Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow

For old, unhappy, far-off things,

And battles long ago:

Or is it some more humble lay,

Familiar matter of today?

Some natural sorrow, loss, or pain,

That has been, and may be again!


Whate'er the theme, the Maiden sung

As if her song could have no ending;

I saw her singing at her work,

And o'er the sickle bending;

I listen'd till I had my fill;

And, as I mounted up the hill,

The music in my heart I bore,

Long after it was heard no more.


''The Solitary Reaper'' by William Wordsworth
