(chestnut, young girls, south and west, Thomas Hardy, severity sunny, beeches, rooks, hang)
The poem ‘Weathers’ was composed by an English poet, Thomas Hardy, who talks about two different seasons which are the spring and the winter. In the first stanza, the pleasant spring season is described. Cuckoo and Nightingale feel good in this season. The light rain flows over the pointed leaves of the chestnut tree.

The poet is pleased as the nightingale sings at his best tune. People come out of their houses to enjoy the weather and the birds’ song. The young girls are seen in their fine clothes. The people plan to visit different places in the south and west. To an English person, the south and the west are associated with summer holiday destinations, where the weather at that time is often warm and sunny, and many coastal towns provide welcoming accommodations and amusements. The poet likes this weather as it is liked by all the birds, animals, and humans as well.

In the second stanza, he talks about the winter’s coldness and severity. All the natural beauty turns into dullness and discomfort. The cuckoo hates this weather. The beeches turn dull and brown as their leaves are threshed by the wind. The water drops hang from the wooden bars of the gates. One can see some streams overflowing as it has been raining a lot. The rooks fly to their homes as the harshness of winter gradually grows. The poet dislikes the winter season because it is very cold and wet.

Symbolically the poet tries to state the bright and dark aspects of human life and the word ‘weathers’ indicates human life. The spring represents the bright whereas the winter represents the dark aspects of our life.

D. In which season would you like to travel? Why?
The best time to travel is during the months from March to May and September to November, which are the spring and autumn seasons respectively. During these months, the weather is generally pleasant with clear skies, warm temperatures, and low humidity. The mountain views are also usually the clearest during these seasons, making it ideal for trekking and other outdoor activities. In contrast, the summer season (June to August) can be quite hot and humid, while the winter season (December to February) can be extremely cold, with heavy snowfall in some areas, making it difficult to travel and explore.
Therefore, it is recommended to plan your trip during the spring or autumn season to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
