i need help analyzing this poem by robert frost. what is the theme? emotions? and is the meaning that man is trying to control nature or fix it?

THE AIM WAS SONG

Before man came to blow it right
The wind once blew itself untaught,
And did its loudest day and night
In any rough place where it caught.

Man came to tell it what was wrong:
It hadn't found the place to blow;
It blew too hard-- the aim was song.
And listen-- how it ought to go!

He took a little in his mouth,
And held it long enough for north
To be converted into south,
And then by measure blew it forth.

By measure. It was word and note,
The wind the wind had meant to be--
A little through the lips and throat.
The aim was song-- the wind could see.

and are these answers right:
the speaker is frost.
there are no similes.
the metaphor is that the wind is a song.
the wind is personified.
imagery is with the wind, day and night
diction is "song"
is there anything else that i missed?
