There is serenity all over, the night is shiny with the silvery shine of the moon. All the things and animals are drenched in the silvery shine of the moon.The poem begins with the moon moving slowly and silently with her silver shine and then she peers and sees the silver fruits upon silver trees. Then, the casement catches her beams beneath the silvery thatch. The dog is compared to a log who is couched and sleeping in his kennel with his silvery paws.
The doves are sleeping with their silver feathers and the white breasts peep from the shadowy cote. The moon further sees the scampering mouse with silver claws and eyes. The poem ends with the moveless fish where the reed and stream are silver.
