What is the central idea of the poem the last bargain?
Answer. “The Last Bargain” by Tagore is a sixteen lines poem composed in blank verse conveying a strong message well needed for the materialistic world that no power, money or lust can make us happy. Simplicity and innocence are the most supreme of all.
Why is the speaker of the poem unhappy?

How do the little ones spend the day?
The little one sits in a relaxed and lethargic way, hunched in his classroom table. He finds no pleasure in any of the school activities and waits anxiously to let the day pass by and he could return back to his parents. He finds his books very dis-interesting since they have been “Worn through” due to rain.
What is the moral of the poem the school boy?
The main theme is the sorrow that the boy feels having to go to school, when he wants to enjoy summer. He has the obligation to go to a close space, but he wants to go outside. Another theme is nature, the freedom that it represents for the boy and the opression of the class.
Who does a cruel eye refer to?
‘A cruel eye outworn’ refers to the dull/uninspiring life at school with lots of work and no play.
Why do the little ones sigh?
When the tiny sacks called alveoli that fill your lungs collapse, they can‘t be used to move gas in or out of your blood any more, which is bad. Fortunately, there is a solution: the sigh. A sigh is breath that is deeper than usual, so sighs fill your lungs with more air than a normal breath would.
What does the child love about summer morning?
Answer: The schoolboy loves to be out in the summer morning listening to the birds singing on the ever tree, the distant Huntsman wind his horn and the Skylark which sing with him and enjoy the Sweet Company.
What plea does the school boy make to his parents?
Explanation: He appeals to his parents, saying that if his youth is shortened by such experiences, then he will never be able to enjoy the remainder of his life either. If he is prevented from fully experiencing the joy of childhood, then how sad it will be when he ages and can no longer hope to do so.
