A Voice Tumbling Into Your Ear

'Prose should have a flow, the forward momentum of a certain energized weight. It should feel like a voice tumbling into your ear.'
--the late John Updike, in perhaps his last published essay, The Writer in Winter. You can review earlier mentions of the literary lion here.

The idea of words tumbling into your ear is simply wonderful.

I rather thought so too, E. Just the right selection and arrangement of words.
