SECTION I.

Parse the words in italics in the following passages:

The monarch saw, and shook,
And bade no more rejoice,
All bloodless waxed his look,
And tremulous his voice:
Let the men of lore appear
The wisest of the earth,
And expound the words of fear

That mar our royal mirth.

Envy is of all crimes the basest; for malice and anger are appeased with benefits, but envy is exasperated, as envying to fortunate persons both their power and their wish to do good.

Write the first passage in simple prose.

SECTION II.

Analyse the following passages :

Yet Time may diminish the pain:
The flower and the shrub and the tree,
Which I reared for her pleasure in vain,
In time may have comfort for me.

A primrose by a river's brim.

Some village Hampden that with dauntless breast.

O Solitude! where are the charms.

The world was all before them where to choose.
He prayeth best, who loveth best all things both
great and small.

Our glorious Semper Eadem, the banner of our pride.
The quality of mercy is not strained.

O woman! in our hours of ease.

Higher still and higher from the earth thou

There are seven pillars of Gothic mould.
Now's the day and now's the hour.
