Explain with reference to their contexts any four of the following passages and supply brief
critical comments where necessary:
There was a Bifih, ceftainlY,
We had evidence and no dlubt' I had seen birth and death'
gut had thought they were different; this Birth was
Hard and bitter agony for us, like Death' our death'
(e)The strong gods Pine for mY abode
And pine in chair the sacred seven
But thou, meek lover of the good!
Find me and turn thY back on heaven'
(f)O Bird of Time, saY where do You learn
The changing measures You sing?
In blowing forests and breaking tides
In the huppy laughter of new made brides'
And the nests of the new-born spring;
