The poet requests that the wind blow softly. He begs the wind not to shatter the window shutters, scatter the papers, or knock the books off the shelf. The poet wants everything to be exactly as it was when he last left them.
In other words, the poet is asking the wind to be a bit gentle so he doesn't have to clean up after itself.
Gentle winds are good for plants. They help them grow and disperse their seeds. So if you want to bless someone with good luck, give them a plant. But be sure to include instructions on how to take care of it!
There are several kinds of plants that like gentle winds: cottonwood trees, willows, asparagus, and peas to name a few. It's thought that these plants release chemicals into the air that make them less hostile to humans. Whether this is true or not, they all need to be cared for properly anyway! Plants dislike being washed with heavy rains or blown around by strong winds. So if you want to bless someone's home, go inside and look at what kind of a job they've done keeping their plants alive and well-groomed.
The poet requests that the wind blow slowly. He begs the wind not to shatter the window shutters, scatter the paper, or toss the books. The wind is a powerful force that can do great damage with little effort. The poet wants it to be calm so he can read undisturbed.
Books can be dangerous if blown around in the wind. The pages may fly off, or the book itself may be damaged. The shutters on the windows can be broken by the wind too. Without shelter, people might be injured or killed when hit by flying objects or exposed to cold weather. Books and music are important for calming the mind and soul. The poet does not want these pleasures disturbed by violence or danger.
There are several images used in this poem to describe how the poet feels about the wind. One image is that of the wind as a "wild beast" that could harm him if it chose. Another image is that of the wind as an angry man who could destroy everything in its path. This shows that even though the wind is only air moving rapidly through space, it has the power to cause havoc.
With a sense of comedy, the poet addresses the wind. I believe the poet's behavior is relevant, and I have also witnessed the wind wreaking havoc on the land. This makes me think that the poet can be funny too.
The poet uses iambs (the metrical unit of sound) to speak. This means that he or she will usually start each line of poetry with an imitative sound. For example, one line might read "The wind blows hard today," or "Sound the trumpet loud." Another way of writing iambic pentameter is using five-beat lines consisting of a stressed syllable followed by an unstressed syllable, like this: /-ːb-/ -ːb-/ -ːb-/ -ːb-/ -ːb-/.
Another thing you should know about the poet is that he or she lives in a city. Paris is the place where you can find most poets. Also, most poets are men or women, but some are also known to work with words so strongly that they become unidentifiable as either male or female.
Finally, it is important to remember that how the poet speaks is not necessarily what they mean!
