The sound of sense is a phrase that Frost used to describe a feeling This feeling as the book describes it is similar to the feeling you get listening to a conversation at a distance You may be unable to hear every word that is spoken but you are able to gain though voice tones and patterns the jest of the conversation Frost utilizes this sense throughout his works As you read his works simply through the words used and the rhyme scheme the overall emotions that he is trying to convey For instance in the poem Out Out Frost uses words such as snarled and rattled to describe the sounds of the chainsaw These words depict a wild aggressive sound helping us imagine the sounds As you read Out Out your normal reading pace is sped Using these words Frost helps us keep the pace so to speak that his words were meant to be read at He emphasizes this tone later in the poem by once again describing the sounds of the saw And the saw snarled and rattled snarled and rattled He next tells us that their day of work was over the sawing would soon be over Instantly Frost says the saw leaped from the boys hand and he gave it to the saw At first the poem keeps its speed and tone as the boy cries out in a rueful laugh After this line the entire mood of the poem changes The poem goes from erratic loud sense to a more frantic but at the same time somber sense Simply from the tone a reader would not have to read the rest of the poem to know the boys hand was lost Mowing another great work of Frosts has a much more peaceful sense Mowing describes a man working in a field alone He is using a scythe to cut grass in a field Threw words like whisper and lack
