NCERT Class 9 Beehive English Poem - A Legend of the Northland

Poem - A Legend of the Northland

Writer of the poem - Phoebe Cary
Summary

A ballad is a song narrating a story in short stanzas. Ballads are a part of folk culture or popular culture and are passed on orally from one generation to the next. ‘A Legend of the Northland’ is a ballad. These traditional stories sometimes popularly regarded as historical but are not authentic. Legends are famous and echo on the values and morals to be assimilated by future generation.

With simple moral of acquiring qualities like kindness, and empathy towards fellow human beings, the poem imparts the moral “Greed leads to sin”. Though the poetess plainly negates authenticity of the legend, she nevertheless attempts to draw the attention of the readers towards the moral the portrays.

This legend talks about a hungry St. Peter and his encounter with a greedy old lady who denies to partake given with a scrape of dough to offer to the hungry saint. The hungry saint who was on the verge of fainting provoked by the old women, curses her to change to a bird, boring and boring for food all day. The bird then flew away through the chimney with a red, scarlet cap. The woodpecker came into existence, says the legend.
