The Silent Snake Summary & Questions & Answers


The poet has beautifully composed the poem showing how the birds flap their wings in the air and the rabbits run and leap. The squirrels run on the tree branches whereas the mayflies move up and down. The poet says that while these creatures play and enjoy the snake silently crawls. On the other hand, the birdies sing and whistle and the insects are busy humming. The frog cry and the squirrels chat but the snake does not make any noise. It remains silent when it goes through the thick and tall grass.
