Describe the reception the patriot received last year from the people as presented in Robert Browning’s poem ‘The Patriot’.
The first two stanzas of the poem gives an account of the grand reception that the patriot received one year ago. His walking path was covered with lots and lots of rose petals, with myrtle mixed in them. The path was festooned with these flower for him.
People standing on the roofs of their houses cheered for him as he passed by. They were overjoyed to see him. The spires of the church were covered with flaming flags that the people had put up for a celebration. People were overwhelmingly delighted to greet their hero and were enthusiastic to see him as he passed by.
