Question and answer
From the tower window the moon draws a silver maple’s shadow across a spangled lawn; horses rear, manes lashing the air, front legs floating. Half monarch, half shadow, the tree aspires to the sky; one branch, cracked by lightning, scrapes the earth. Reflected on the grass, bent twigs are curved hooves, galloping as the moon rises. Divided it stands in wholeness, mourning its victories, praising the god of trees, the king of horses. The tree holds souls in a bark prison poised like a runner at the
starting line— and bolts free, wildly pawing the ground those roots lie under. Source: Schulman, Grace. “Horses on the Grass.” Days of Wonder: New and Selected Poems. New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 2002. Poetry Foundation. Web. 25 July 2011. Which statement about the poem is true? The poem follows a rhyme scheme. The poem is a sonnet. The poem follows a fixed pattern of meter. The poem uses free-verse structure.
