"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 coat the white breasts peep
Of doves in a 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."
(a) Describe the "silver scene" in "Silver."
(b) Describe the effects of the moon's walk through the night.
(c) How has the moon transformed this scene?
(a) The moon rises, thrusting its light among trees. One of the casements catch beneath a thatch. It illuminates a sleeping dog in its kennel, and a mouse as it scatters by, as well as motionless fish in a moonlit stream.

Is my answer correct?

Are you clear on what a casement is? What thatch is?
Remember that for (a), you need to concentrate on what all the things are in the poem that seem to be silver. I wouldn't delete anything you've written, but there are some things you've omitted.

I disagree with your second sentence. The others are correct.

So then...if I were to delete the second sentence, it would, indeed, be correct?
