Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

This worksheet is part of a series that allows you to explore different aspects of poetry. The worksheet is based on the following poem by Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892):

 

 

**********************

The Eagle

 

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;

Close to the sun in lonely lands,

Ringed with the azure world, he stands.
 


The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;

He watches from his mountain walls,

And like a thunderbolt he falls.
