Q1. Read the poem and answer the questions that follow-- A DARK NIGHT IT WAS .... A dark, grim night it was Filled with short sharp barks I heard the yelping dogs Some leaves rustled in the dark. Slowly and softly the wind blew I felt the night was gripping me. The sky was of sombre grey hue I wanted to set myself free. I heard a song from somewhere Perhaps a distant hill But tightly I closed my ears The sweet voice had a frightening feel. I suffered till I saw the light The first ray of the morning sun It wiped all fears of the previous night No more did I want to run. The morning brought delight Happiness and hope for me All doubts were far from sight The gripping fear had set me free.
