NCERT Solutions for Class 7 English Honeycomb Poem Chapter 1: The Squirrel

iacst-2022

"Squirrel", one of the jolliest creatures existing on earth was written by Mildred Bowers Armstrong. In the poem, the poet apprises his readers about a sedentary squirrel, Munching nuts. He used "he/his" instead of "It" for the squirrel in the speech.

This is a great example of a poetic device called "Personification," an art of portraying a non- living object or an animal as a Human being. His speech follows by describing the squirrel's tail as a question mark. The poet seemed quite Pleased by the squirrel in the poem. He describes the squirrel as if the little creature was wearing a grey overcoat. The squirrel sat straight and was eating nuts. It appeared that he was enjoying eating those nuts. This depicts the carefree and jolly nature of the squirrel. Next, the poet talks about the squirrel's general nature, Rivetingly, the squirrel seemed to tease and play around like a carefree little child. The Nature of the squirrel amused him.

The poet apparently ran after the squirrel to grasp him, but the squirrel ran the other way. The poem could say that 'The squirrel' is based on the poet's speculation and observation about a squirrel's nature and general behaviour. We can get a literal idea about the squirrel's actions and his general life from this piece. He describes the squirrel as the quickest animal because he ran away when the author tried to catch him. This intensifies the beauty of nature. The squirrel sat straight next to the tree and ate Nuts; this shows the little creature's endearing nature. Hence, we can conclude from this poem that the squirrel is indeed a jolly and lovable creature.
