Read the following lines: He saw the gilded weatherwingspan Swim in the moonlight as he passed, And the meeting-house windows, blank and bare, Gaze at him with a spectral glare, As if they already stood aghast At the bloody work they would look upon. Which of the following statements best explains the effect of the personification in these lines?

    The imagery of the moonlight swimming creates a confusing environment. The description of the windows as empty eyes with a ghostly look creates a dark mood. The personification of the windows makes the day seem open to endless opportunity. The description of the meeting house as a blank face communicates a hopeful tone.

    I do not find it likely for the answer to be the first or last options. Based on the remaining lines combined with the rest of the poem, I'm relatively sure that the answer is the 2nd option, 'The description of the windows as empty eyes with a ghostly look creates a dark mood.'
