In The poem "The Nymph"s Reply to the Shepard" the poet writes When the river rage and rocks grow cold, but he could have written when rivers rush and rocks grow coldwithout affecting themeter,rhyme, or alliteration in the line Also both rage and rush communicate that the river was flowing very quickly. Why would the poet have used rage instead of rush here?
