I don't quite get what they mean by senses... Here is their question, it's based on a poem named 'The Village Blacksmith'.

You can experience a poem more fully if you use your senses. What sense is the blacksmith using in lines 28 and 29?

The lines:

28] He hears his daughter's voice,
29] Singing in the village choir,

Later on, they also ask this:

Give three details from the poem that appeal to your senses, and tell what sens each appeals to.

I hope someone can help =]

    This is referring the the five senses:

    sight
    hearing
    taste
    touch
    smell

    The terminology "sensory details" is another way of referring to these five.
