Author: poem of Thomas Hardy Type: poem Views: 20

'There is not much that I can do,

For I've no money that's quite my own!'

Spoke up the pitying child--

A little boy with a violin

At the station before the train came in,--

'But I can play my fiddle to you,

And a nice one 'tis, and good in tone!'



The man in the handcuffs smiled;

The constable looked, and he smiled too,

As the fiddle began to twang;

And the man in the handcuffs suddenly sang

With grimful glee:

'This life so free

Is the thing for me!'

And the constable smiled, and said no word,

As if unconscious of what he heard;

And so they went on till the train came in--

The convict, and boy with the violin.

Many things come to mind when I read this poem to myself. I thought that the poem seemed really happy. Even though the prisoner was in handcuffs, he said he was free. The boy was jolly even though he was really poor, and spread his happiness to both the prisoner and the officer. In other words, :)

What a delighful and encouraging image is conjured up by the words of this poem. Alas, I fear such occurrences are sadly a thing of the past. There is good in all of us. It is just a matter of looking for it. Chance may play a part in that, as it does here. The policeman smiling completes gthe scene wonderfully.
