Could someone please have a look at the answers for grammar and interpretation mistakes?

After spending hours, days, even weeks on them I feel they are not quite right, and don’t sparkle. I am not sure if grammar, sentence structure, flow, punctuation, mood and tense are presented in a manner that makes sense. I have put parenthesis where I myself doubt. Could you please do the checking, and make sure that the flow of readability of the answers is correct, and the style is consistent?


Here's the poem. The questions and their answers follow.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Stanza # 03 (The questions below are related to Stanza No. 3)

1. What are harness bells?
Harness bells are sets of (bell straps) fixed together and fitted to an animal such as a horse so that it can be attached to a cart or carriage for pulling.

2. Why does the horse shake his harness bells?
The horse understands that this isn’t the final destination, that they have to press on, even if the narrator has momentarily forgotten in the tranquility. He understands that if they stay there they will die from the cold. So he shakes his harness bells to remind the narrator of his obligations, and to urge him to continue.

3. What other sounds alone can be heard where the poet is standing?
Besides the sound of shaking of the harness bells, the sounds “of easy wind and downy flake” alone can be heard where the poet is standing.

4. Why does the poet mention these sounds?
The poet mentions the sounds to create an auditory image, and to provide contrast to the tranquility of the scene. The descriptions of the sounds provide a little insight to his mindset and position. He is so still that he can hear the soft fall of the downy flakes, and the movement of the easy wind. This also shows a great calm and patience that the he must possess.

1. You have described a harness, not harness bells. Harness bells are attached to the harness. They are small round metal bells that jingle when the horse is moving. Know the song 'Jingle Bells'? They are just for decoration and even when they come already attached to a leather strap, the leather strap doesn't form part of the functional aspect of the harness.
Dear NTB,

It's so nice of you to giving me hand. Many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many THANKS!!Emotion: big smile

P.S. Please pardon me if I don't thank you adequately. Because I am unable to figure out how to thank you. It's so kind of you.

So can I describe them like this?
Nona The BritHarness bells are attached to the/a harness. They are small round metal bells that jingle when the horse is moving.
--- Do I use 'the' or 'a'? I am quite confused here. You used the word 'harness' for the third time. That's why I think you used 'the'. But if I want to say it like this, which article do I use?

One more thing.... Can I replace "harness" with "leather strap" ? Which is better to use, 'harness' or 'leather strap'?
