Question 1: The poet says, "Beauty is heard in..."

Can you hear beauty? Add a sound that you think is beautiful to the sounds the poet thinks are beautiful.

The poet, Keats, said:

Heard melodies are sweet.

But those unheard are sweeter.

What do you think this means? Have you ever heard' a song in your head, long after the song was sung or played?


The beauty of nature and its constituents can not only be seen through the human eye but at the same time can also be felt and heard.

The melodious voices of the birds chirping all around are also a part of the sounds that the poet thinks are beautiful.

According to the poet, Keats, the heard melodies are soothing to hear, however, the unheard are much sweeter because of the lasting effect that they have on an individual's mind.

Yes, we often 'hear' a song deep inside our mind even after it has finished because of the long lasting effect of the music and its beats.

Question 2: Read the first and second stanzas of the poem again. Note the following phrases.

Corn growing, people working or dancing, wind sighing. rain falling, a singer chanting

These could be written as

  • corn that is growing
  • people who are working and dancing

Can you rewrite the other phrases like this? Why do you think the poet uses the shorter phrases?


The other phrases are as follows:

  • Wind that is sighing
  • Rain that is falling
  • A singer who is chanting

The poet uses these short phrases in the poem to divert the attention of the reader towards the beauty of the nature and its constituents. The use of shorter phrases also places the natural beauty at the forefront thereby highlighting their importance and the pleasant effect that they create.

Question 3: Find pictures of beautiful things you have seen or heard of.


The Mother Nature is full of beautiful things. The poem has not only enhanced the beauty of these natural elements present on the Earth but it has also left an important message of enjoying their presence in our day- to-day lives.

Looking around, one can observe the beauty of the flowing water and its sweet noise. The soothing rays of the sun coming indirectly from behind the dark clouds, the colours that the rainbow spreads as it comes after a rain shower and the scenic beauty of the mountains, valleys and the forests are symbols of happiness and joy which not only refresh the mind but also wash away negativity, thereby bring positivity all around.

Question 4: Write a paragraph about beauty. Use your own ideas along with the ideas in the poem.

(You may discuss your ideas with your partner)


The essence of Beauty is a very vivid concept. It is not limited to a particular thing but is a very broad understanding of the qualities that are pleasant and soothing in nature.

As the poem highlights the beauty of the nature which can not only be seen but also heard shows the effect of nature on the human mind. In addition to this, the poem also talks about the beauty present in an individual itself. The good deeds and thoughts of an individual shape his/her charming appearance.

Beauty is something inherent in every individual in different ways. In order to live a peaceful life, it is important for human beings to appreciate the beautiful ideas in one another.
