The lyrics, “she follows them down, in her gown of frost”, seems to say that she is following the snowflakes, but to where? The lyrics later help visualize where she is going by, “she rushed by trees, but the limbs are tossed”. From this, it seems that Bernon is giving one a setting, but let’s one’s imagination run free to where she actually is, whether it be a sanctuary or a new world even. Furthermore, the song lyrics give the song a lonely aura. The lyrics “the stars are her only, lonely companion”, directly translates why this song gives a lonely aura.
In the street below a peddler was crying his wares. The notes of a distant song which some one was singing reached her faintly, and countless sparrows were twittering in the eaves. Spring signifies the start of life anew, which is what she faces now. Rain feeds new growth; the peddler is independent; and birdsong is often characterized by feelings of lightness and buoyancy. Louise’s name is only mentioned at the end of the story, when her sister Josephine begs of her to open the door to her room.
She is rich enough to be comfortable among the East Eggers but enough of a social hustler to appear at Gatsby's parties. Jordan serves still another purpose, she is actually Nick's girlfriend during the summer of 1922.

Kristine Paulus Return Journey “A Worn Path” October 3, 2011 Phoenix continues on her footsteps with her cane on the narrow road ahead of her. She slowly wipes the tears from her aged eyes filled with joy and satisfaction. Then she looks at the medicine and says “oh child grandma is coming home, I’ll soon be there”. She looks up to the sky and say “thank you Lord for guiding my footsteps to get this medicine for my ill grandson”. “Tap tap tap” she repeats constantly as she heads south to her destination to the toy store.
Pearl is drawn greatly toward the scarlet object, and the sunshine nearly loses hope, although protects Pearl in the end. For instance, while Hester and Pearl are walking towards the forest, she becomes attracted toward the sun and “Pearl set forth, at a great pace, and, as Hester smiled to perceive, did actually catch the sunshine, and stood laughing in the midst of it, all brightened by its splendor, and scintillating with the vivacity excited by rapid motion” (166). Since Pearl seems to be in a trance with the scarlet letter, the sunshine takes responsibility to draw her away to go and play. Hester seems to take notice, indicating this step toward getting Pearl away proves valuable.
