  • literature -

    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"?
    Read the section called The imagination for insight into de la Mare's writing.
