Like the warbler who footles through light leaves, the warbler of this music footles through chiming language sounds, whether alliterative-from "following" to "felt," through "futile" and "false," so that "failed" feels inevitable from the second line's "trail"--or assonant--"so-called / calling" to the "falls," through which something "smaller" is heard: the rhyme on "aura" toward which the first five lines seem to have been leading.
