English poetry by A.e.housman

Loveliest of Trees,The cherry now

A.e.housman the poet of this poem.He was born in 1859.He gets

his Education in oxford univercity.His poetry is very good.

Loveliest of trees the cherry now

Is hung with bloom along the bough

And stands about the wood land ride

Wearing white easter tide.

Now,of my three score years and ten

Twenty will not come again,

And take from seventy Springs a score,

It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom

Fifty Springs are little room,

About the wood land I will go

To see the cherry hung with snow.

Theme of this poem

Beauty in all its forms is enchanting.But the poet is

especially attracted by the beauty of a cherry tree whose

branches are loaded with flowers and are covered with snow.

The poet wants to enjoy its beauty to the full.But he thinks that

life is too short to enjoy this scene fully.So he says that one

should not miss any chance of enjoying the beauty and charm

of the cherry tree which he declares to be the loveliest of trees.
