Could you please check which tense is best in the following sentences? Thank you. (The poet remembers a walk he went on with his sister, during which he was struck by the song of a Highland Lass.)


1) The poet doesn’t know the song she is singing.
2) As a matter of fact, the poet couldn’t understand the words of the song as the girl was presumably singing in Gaelic, the native language of the Scottish Highlands.
3) He speculates that her song might be about heroic events of the past, about everyday life or a painful experience.
4) Whatever she sings (or sang?) about, he says, he listened “motionless and still,” and as he travelled up the hill, he carried her song with him in his heart long after he could no longer hear it.
