Hi
Please help me with a few lines in the poem The Village School Master.
"Well had the boding tremblers learned to trace
the days disasters in his morning face."
My question: What does boding mean? Does tremblers refer to students?
What does this mean?
"The love he bore for learning was in fault."

vsureshWell had the boding tremblers learned to trace the days disasters in his morning face.
The students, in their anxiety, had learned the art of forecasting the teacher's mood for the whole day by looking carefully at his face in the morning.

boding ~ predicting, forecasting (usually predicting something that might provoke anxiety)
tremblers ~ the students, portrayed as anxious or fearful
vsureshThe love he bore for learning was in fault.
[His love of learning / His dedication to education] was [the cause / the reason].

Please don't add posts that contain nothing but a quotation of the original question. As you should be able to see quite easily, the answer has already been given, so your plea for an answer is needless and a waste of our time.
