weak winds nellie detalente

I think the author choose to write this poem because they felt a strong connection with the wind and what the wind brings to people, what it feels like, and how it sounds..
The Wind -- knocked like a weary elderly man -- and like an Entertainer "Enter" I bravely answered -- came in the My House within A swift -- footless Guest -- To propose them with a Seat Were as impractical as hand A Sofa to the Air-- No bone He had to bind Him -- His speech was like the thrust Of innumerable humming birds at once from a superior bush -- his face -- a Wave -- His fingers, as he passed let go a music -- as of tunes Blown tremulous in Glass -- He visited -- still dancing -- Then like a cowardly man Again, He knocked -- 'twas flurreidly -- and I became alone -
This poem has a lot of imagery "the wind tapped like a tired man", this quote is not only imagery but is a simile as well. "His speech was like the Push" is also a simile and imagery. " the wind tapped like a tired man" is a personal faction. Imagery is used in this poem to show us how the writer felt. The sound devices that are being used are being used to show us how it felt to hear the sounds of what the writer was trying to explain.
The tone of this poem is sad and lonely. This is the tone because at the begins by telling that the wind was the only thing there, at the end it states that the wind had left and the writer was lonely once again.
The setting changes once the wind is outside and the man lets the wind in the house.
I think the author choose to write this poem because they felt a strong connection with the wind and what the wind brings to people, what it feels like, and how it sounds..
The theme of this story is the sound of the winds could make you less lonelier.
