In Longfellow’s poem, ‘Daybreak’, the wind originates from the sea and blows over it and the land at dawn. First, it urges the mists to make room for its passage. Then, it greets the ships and urges the mariners to sail on as the night is gone. The wind then rushes to the distant land. It invites the forest to display its leafy trees. Then it touches the folded wing of the wood-bird and urges it to sing. After that, the wind moves over the farms and asks the chanticleer to crow as day is breaking. Then it whispers to the fields of corn to bow down to greet the morning. It also urges the bell in the belfry tower to ring in the morning. But when the wind blows across the cemetery, it sighs for the dead buried there and asks them to lie quietly.
