In the poem. the poet is talking to the wind and he asks the wins to come softly. poet also says that wind should not be strong and it should come delicately and softly then he describes that powerful wind is destructive and it breaks the shutters and windows and scatters the paper.
Moreover when the wind is very powerful then it takes down the books from the shelves. after that, he asks the wind to look at the damage it has caused. further whenever the wind is strong all the weak things like plants. children etc. get fearful and sometimes get hurt . In the initial part of the poem. the poet is referring to the wind as a young child. firstly he said that it comes softly as a child does. later on we come to know that it became destructive like a Youth full of energy. violence. and destruction.
