(a) Summary of the poem The Children's Hour:
The Children’s Hour is the name the speaker gives to an hour in the evening sometime between the dark and the dawn. He is working by lamplight in his study and hears the footsteps and the sweet, hushed voices of his three daughters. A door opens and he can see Alice, Allegra, and Edith slipping down the steps as they plot and plan to ambush him.

Suddenly they rush and surround him as if conducting a raid on a castle. They climb on his chair, seemingly everywhere at once. They kiss him joyfully and throw their arms around him, reminding him of the Bishop of Bingen, a character from a folk-tale who had been surrounded and devoured by mice in his tower.

He laughingly addresses them, asking if they think that this “old mustache” is no match for them just because they’ve managed to scale the walls. He will hold them prisoner here, placing them in the “dungeon” of his heart. There they will live forever until the walls crumble into dust.

(b) Summary of the poem Wishing:
In this poem the poet has explained about selfish motives of human who always think about his own benefits. The poet says that everyone wants a wiser world but nobody makes a start. If you want to make a difference in world you should never do bad things.

We should always try to learn something new and teach new things to other people instead of being selfish. Our world needs loving people who care for each other. We should always try to avoid hurting people.
