The old man doubtless wanted a sough of peace in his own home.
Naught was heard save the droning of the students and the sough of the wind in the forest.
The sough of the calm sea could not reach so far; the flies were few; no bird sang.
If there's a' sough o' cholera,Or typhus,—wha sae gleg as she?
He could hear the sough of the sea on the beach, far down below him.
The sough of the wind and the fleeing cloud of night was all they saw or heard.
I knew it was the “sough” of the sea against the sides of the vessel.
Outside there was a melancholy wail in the sough of the hill-wind.
The air was full of the rush of the waves and the sough of a rising wind.
Every sough of the wind among the brackens was a dread presage.
