Option C in your question is the correct example of a transferred epithet from the poem “Father Returning Home”.

In a transferred epithet an adjective which is used to describe one thing is transferred to another. Here, the adjective “humid” is used with night. The night itself was not humid, but the air or the weather in that night was.
