(By the lake in the city park, several swans were asleep sleeping, with their shadows falling on the sandy shore. The shadows were clear and about the shape of an egg. There and then, one of these shades shadows started changing; it lengthened slowly along the flat land as if it were a big, dark wad of chewing gum. In a few moments it came into took on the shape of a human being.)
- "Hanged" usually refers to the punishment involving a noose. "Hung" is for when something is suspended.
- "Shade", when used countably, means "ghost", not "shadow".
- "Chewing gum" is uncountable, so it needs a counter word to take an indefinite article, which is why I added "wad of".
