Sound and Sense

Sound and Sense

by Alexander Pope

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(5) Tree Line

The good news is that "Sound and Sense" is short, and the rhyme makes it fun to read even if you're not always sure what it means. Depending on your tolerance for classical references and your level of comfort with intense sound play, you may get a stitch in your side on this hike.
