in the poem the wind, the poet describes the power of the wind. when he sees the kites flying high in the sky and also the birds soaring high, he knows the wind is doing its job. The poet cannot see the wind but when it blows past him he knows that it is at work. so with the childish curiosity, the poet wants to know what kind of person the wind is like. whether it is young or old, is it a beast or a tree or just a small child like himself, but a little stronger.
