‘Downy flake’ is the soft feathery small pieces of snow falling from the sky. In the context of the poem, it symbolizes that the place is very quiet. The sounds of the downy flake and the easy winds are the only audible sounds where the speaker has stopped. This only intensifies the serenity of the place.
