Which lines contain a metaphor? A. "Slowly, smoothly, / Black as the night, / with paws unseen / (white upon white)" B. "like a queen who walks / down a corridor / the black cat paced / that cold smooth floor—" C. "and left behind her, / bead upon bead, / the track of small feet / like dark fern seed." D. "and the lamplight fell / narrow and thin / a carpet unrolled / for the cat to walk in."
