I really appreciate this poem; here the poet manages to capture the power and force of the weather conditions on a particular day. The lines are magical evoking a sense that something more powerful has a hand in shaping our lives; as if everything had been purposely made for mankind to enjoy. The poet here is at one with the elements. It is an illustration of perfect harmony both in word and subject.
