Mmm, lovely. I want to say this word over and over:

susurrus (poetic) n a murmuring; a whisper; a rustling. adj susurrant. vi susurrate. n susurration. [Origin from Latin susurrus] Chambers, 1998

Let's move it from the purely "poetic" back into general usage, shall we?

  1. This has been one of my favourite words for many years, now - so beautifully onomatopoeic and atmospheric.
