Grade 9 Reading Lesson 8 Poetry – The Brook

This is a wonderfully lyrical poem, even for Alfred Lord Tennyson – in places it verges on pure music. In fact, it is hardly necessary to understand it – just let the images and beautifully patterned rhythms flow past, evoking the babbling brook. As we read along, we are told of the brook’s journey and its eternal passing. ‘The Brook’ is Alfred Lord Tennyson’s way of describing natural beauty.
