…And Whiskers on Kittens?

Dance critic Clive Barnes on a current American Ballet Theater production:

This 1964 ballet is totally alive with both Shakespeare’s poetry and his earthy, timeless human comedy, all magically enmeshed in a gossamer web of choreography shimmering like moonlight on dewdrops.

Would it be impertinent to ask whether Clive has ever actually SEEN moonlight on dewdrops?
