    Silver

    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.
