42 43 The shape of the letter W can be described as wavy and watery, and so can the type of motion it implies. In liquids it is an aqueous flow, as in swelling billows. In air it is of whisps of wool or down, wafted away, blown on the winds. Wavering is the state of mind reflected in the W sound it is weak, wet, weary, weedy, wobbly, wandering, woeful, wistful, willowy, wishywashy and querulous.

Through that swamp we sweat and swear, wondering which why what when where washed away by waves of water A watery walk Woes of the wayfarer
