SUSAN! you want to cheat?!? Read it reading is fun I'll give you this the rest you have to do your self.
Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees;
One by one the casements catch
Her beams beneath the silvery thatch;
Couched in his kennel, like a log,
With paws of silver sleeps the dog;
From their shadowy cote the white breasts peep
Of doves in silver feathered sleep
A harvest mouse goes scampering by,
With silver claws, and silver eye;
And moveless fish in the water gleam,
By silver reeds in a silver stream
"shoon" = shoes
"casements" = windows that open outward
"thatch" = roof material
"cote" = small shed for doves
Everything looks silvery in the moonlight. What do you think the poet means when he writes "the moon / walks the night"?
