Ralph Waldo Emerson Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,

Arrives the snow, and, driving o’er the fields,

Seems nowhere to alight; the whited air

Hides hills and woods, the river, and the heaven,

And veils the farm-house at the garden’s end.

How to understand "Seems nowhere to alight"?

Thank you in advance!

My guess would be the snow seems to land nowhere.
Meaning it doesn't fall on anything. You cannot guess where does it fall.
