3 The Naughty Boy There was a naughty boy, And a naughty boy was he, He ran away to Scotland,The people there to see-Then he foundWas as hard,That a yardWas as long,That a songWas as merry,
4 That a cherryWas as red,That leadWas as weighty,That fourscoreWas as eighty,That a door was as woodenAs in England—So he stood in his shoesAnd he wondered,He wondered,He stood in his shoes,And he wondered.– John Keats
5 SUMMARY OF THE POEMOnce a naughty boy went to Scotland to see its people. There he found a ground, which was as long as a yard, a song which was joyful, the cherry which was red, the lead which was very heavy, an eighty year old eighty, and a wooden door. It was all the same as was in England. The boy stood in his shoes looking at all these things. He wondered at all these things.
