  1. Is the poem?


    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    A wind came up out of the sea,
    And said, "O mists, make room for me."

    It hailed the ships and cried, "Sail on,
    Ye mariners, the night is gone."

    And hurried landward far away,
    Crying "Awake! it is the day."

    It said unto the forest, "Shout!
    Hang all your leafy banners out!"

    It touched the wood-bird's folded wing,
    And said, "O bird, awake and sing."

    And o'er the farms, "O chanticleer,
    Your clarion blow; the day is near."

    It whispered to the fields of corn,
    "Bow down, and hail the coming morn."

    It shouted through the belfry-tower,
    "Awake, O bell! proclaim the hour."

    It crossed the churchyard with a sigh,
    And said, "Not yet! In quiet lie."

    I'll be glad to check your answers.

  16. The wind addresses to the land and terrestrial animals birds and all things living to wake up .
    The wind is saying that “ the night has gone and wake up to the light of the sun and a new day “ .
    The poem describes the wind trying to make the beings appreciate the morning, the sun , the trees that bloom and flowers that blossom and to enjoys the morning .
    This means that you should awaken to see the sun before so you don’t miss it .
    The morning and the day has started . It tells a bit about the poem that tells that the day has arisen to the will of the new day with the sun .
