AIM- to direct purpose
-It could be meant as "the direct purpose of a poem"
the tone of the poem is sanguine the speaker is writing about the origin of poems. "before man came to blow it rite the wind once blew itself untaught." Meaning that before poems could be written freely and now they had structure. "Man came to tell it what was wrong: it hadn't found a place to blow;it blew too hard-the aim was song." Saying that man came and found something wrong, finding that it had no place in writing. "The aim was song- the wind could see." Later man gave poems structure/or purpose, which makes the tone sanguine (which is happy). Confusion THE AIM WAS SONG Before man came to blow it right
The wind once blew itself untaught,
And did its loudest day and night
In any rough place where it caught
Man came to tell it what was wrong:
It hadn't found a place to blow;
It blew too hard -the Aim was Song
And listen-how it ought to go!
He took a little in his mouth,
And held it long enough for North
To be converted into South,
And then by measure it blew forth.
By measure.It was word and note,
The wind the wind had meant to be-
A little the lips and throat.
The aim was song-the wind could see
