Down hill on a bicycle
by:-Henry Charles Beeching Poem
WITH lifted feet, hands still,
I am poised, and down the hill
Dart, with heedful mind;
The air goes by in a wind.

Swifter and yet more swift, 5
Till the heart with a mighty lift
Makes the lungs laugh, the throat cry:—
'O bird, see; see, bird, I fly.

'Is this, is this your joy?
O bird, then I, though a boy 10
For a golden moment share
Your feathery life in air!'

Say, heart, is there aught like this
In a world that is full of bliss?
'Tis more than skating, bound 15
Steel-shod to the level ground. Summary This poem is about a kid who is riding his bicycle downhill and having fun. After sometime when he starts catching speed he think he is bird soaring through air. During this time he is thinking to himself if there is anything better than riding a bicycle downhill. But then hill end and his speed slows and then he look forward to the next run downhill. Poem Speed slackens now, I float
Awhile in my airy boat;
Till, when the wheels scarce crawl,
My feet to the treadles fall. 20

Alas, that the longest hill
Must end in a vale; but still,
Who climbs with toil, wheresoe'er,
Shall find wings waiting there. Poem Analysis Rhyme Scheme:- This poem does have a rhyme scheme which rhymes in consecutive lines. Ex:-
