- Why is it called “The Storm”? She could have called it “The Snow” or “New Snow” or “Chill Out Dog” or whatever. Why focus on the storm (and, come to think of it, doesn’t all this happen after the storm)?
- In the first stanza: “white”, “snow”, “with”, and “wild”. It’s certainly lovely to hear all those words along with each other. But then why not fill the poem with similar-sounding words? Why turn it on in the first stanza, but not in the next two?
- Is there significance in the dissimilarity between “written…in large exuberant letters” and “could not have said it better myself”?
Would love your help in understanding this better! Speculations and answers are invited.
