Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening Man and the Natural World Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (line)
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake. (11-12)
What does a sweeping noise sound like? Well, when we say the word "sweep" aloud, we can kind of hear a little wind come out of our mouths. Try it. That ssss noise along with the wwww noise creates a little storm. It's quiet out here in the wilderness, and this quiet almost becomes another character, another presence.
