                             Lake Isle of Innisfree

            I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree.
  And a small cabin built there, of clay and wattles
  Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the
  honey bee.
  And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

  And I shall have some peace there, for peace
  comes dropping slow.
  Dropping from the veils of the morning to where
  the crickets sings.
  There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a pirple
  An evening full of linnet's wings.

  I will arise and go now, for always night and day.
  I hear the lake water lapping with low sounds by
  the shore,
  while I stand on the roadway, or on the
  pavements grey.
  I hear it in the deep heart's core.

Read the extract below carefully and answer the questions that follow.
"Brothers, don't talk like that! Lutong said. "I know our
late father didn't say who should be the new chief. He
died before he had time to say anything about it. But it
is our people's custom that the eldest son should
succeed the father. We must respect the custom."

"Custom-what use is that ? Can you buy a pound of
custom of ten silver dollars ?" Umat asked rudely. "What
sort of a chief will brother Galau be ? If men start a
quarrel, can he stop them ? If any enemies attack our
village, can he lead an army ?"

Galau sat still and said nothing. He didn't like to quarrel
with his brother. But Umat thought he was afraid.

"There, you see," he said to Lutong. He spoke so loudly
that everybody in the room could hear him. "Here's
brother Galau, too frigtened to speak up for himself.
What sort of a chief would he be? Tomorrow, at the
meeting, I will sit at the highest place. Galau can sit
beside me. You can sit beside me too if you like," he
said to Lutong and walked out of the room.
