HSC English 1st Paper - Blow Blow Thou Winter Wind by Willam Shakespeare

Blow, blow, thou winter wind, 
   Thou art not so unkind 
      As man’s ingratitude; 
   Thy tooth is not so keen, 
Because thou art not seen, 
      Although thy breath be rude. 
Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly: 
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly: 
   Then, heigh-ho, the holly! 
      This life is most jolly. 

   Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky, 
   That dost not bite so nigh 
      As benefits forgot: 
   Though thou the waters warp, 
      Thy sting is not so sharp 
      As friend remembered not. 
Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly...

Unknown Words: 
Thou - তুমি 
Thy - তোমার 
Ingratitude - অকৃতজ্ঞতা, নিমকহারামি 
Feigning - ভন্ডামিতে ভরা, ছলনাতে ভরা 
mere - নিছক 
folly- মূর্খতা, বোকামি, মূর্খের মতো কাজ করা।  

Nigh - কাছাকাছি (Adverb), নিকটবর্তি (Adjective)
The arrival of college bus is nigh.
Warp - পাক খুলিয়া দেওয়া
He warped the box.
Sting- দংশন, কামড়, তীব্র মানসিক যন্ত্রণা দেওয়া

The Summary:
The main theme of this poem is man's inhumanity towards fellow beings. The selfish and ungrateful man has a common characteristic of forgetting the friends after their specific purpose is served. The poet compared this nasty behavior with cold winter wind and he thinks that winter wind is not bitter than man's ingratitude towards friends. 

Winter is harsh but the harshness of man's ingratitude to friends is beyond compare. The poet thinks that winter wind is not so sharp because it is not visible. But man's ungratefulness towards friends is visible. And not remembering them is more bitter than winter wind.
