I'm not sure this poem is as simple as you're making it out to be. It seems
to me that the Wind could represent an adult while the Man is a child. The
Wind, knowing how to blow already, allows the Man to do it himself, giving
the Man confidence.And the Wind is forced to do as many adults do and just
sit back and smile while the Man shows off his new found skill.

My dear guidi this poem is actually very ironic, as it talks about man and
how he wanted to show the wind how to blow. the wind has been blowing for
ages and yet here comes the man who thinks that he knows it all and tries
to teach the wind!

This poetic masterpiece reminds me of back when me and my Zimbabwian
mistress pretended that the windows of my Alfa Romeo car were the windows
of a time machine and that our arms became fossils.

This poem is ironical because the wind knew how to sing all along, while
the mans foolishness is seen -(because he was trying to teach him).
