    1. Read the oral poem below and respond to the questions that follow.


      A barefoot boy! I mark him at his play...
      For May is here once more, and so is he,...
      His dusty trousers, rolled half to the knee,
      And his bare ankles grimy, too, as they:
      Cross- hatchings of the nettle, in array
      Of feverish stripes, hint vividly to me
      Of woody pathways winding endlessly
      Along the creek, where even yesterday
      He plunged his shrinking body - gasped and shook
      Yet called the water 'warm' with never lack
      Of joy. And so, half enviously I look
      Upon this graceless barefoot and his track,...
      His toe stubbed..., his big toe-nail knocked back
      Like unto the clasp of an old pocketbook.
