This poem is about a boy and girl who have been to see a movie As they are walking home the boy is struck by the difference between the bright colors and high-tech sound effects of the movie and the white snow that he sees on the walk home He also comments on the silence the sound track so dead He uses strong images to describe the intensity of the movie like bones whistled and screen shook with fire He seems impressed by the effects of the movie as he says like life only better It seems a let-down to him to be walking home in the quiet white snowUpon reading this poem for a 2nd time I noticed that the boy seems to describe the walk home in a more positive light than what I thought after the 1st reading By that I mean that he seems to be enjoying the snow falling and the idea that it was so quiet you could hear the trees talking Somehow the peace and tranquility of the scene was more clear to me after treading this poem a second time Im not as sure as I was that he is unimpressed with the snow scene After looking at this poem for a 3rd time I am still thinking that this boy is enjoying the walk home He mentions holding his girls hand not in the movie but as they were walking home in the snow He seems to be lost in the moment because he is therewith this particular girl He notices the white of the drifts and the silence It is quite a contrast to the action movie that he describes they have just seen I think the line about the snow falling as they walked home helps to paint the picture for us as readers of this poem For me this is a tranquil sceneAs
