What do the last four lines of the poem mean to you?
In the last four lines of the poem, the poet compares the strong blows of the wind with the adversities of human lives. He attempts at giving a deeper insight of the word ‘wind’ by inspiring the readers to face the difficulties in the path of life with utmost courage and tenacity. The lines “The wind blows out weak fires. He makes strong fires roar and flourish.” reveal a very thought provoking message in which the poet throws light on the fact that the hardships intimidate the weak and feeble while they make the strongly will powered much more firm and bold. Thus, he suggests of embracing the wind or the hardships of life and becoming friends with them.
