The poet describes the raw force of the wind in this poem. The wind is thus a symbol of power or force. When the wind blows it breaks the shutters of the windows. It throws down the books on the shelf. It tears the pages of the books. In doing so the wind makes fun of the weak things. It makes fun of weak and crumbling houses, doors, forests and hearts. It not only makes fun of these things but also crushes them all. The wind god windows them and crushes them.
The poet draws out a fine moral from the force of wind. He says that the wind will not do any harm to the strong homes, doors or the bodies. It means that if we are strong, even the strong enemy will not harm us in any way. The wind blows out weak fires. But it makes strong fires roar. So this way its friendship is good.
