Longfellow in his poem sounds the clarion call of the day. He describes the sight and sounds hailing the rousing of the rousing of life at Daybreak. The poet picks on the wind as the agent of herald, announcing the dawn. The wind cheers the mariners, stimulates the forest, enlivens the birds, rouses the chanticleer, animates the cornfields and invigorates the belfry tower to ring out loud. The wind does not want to disturb the repose of those sleeping i the graveyard, for it is not time for them to wake up yet.
