I agree with Benjy. Though this poem antagonizes nature as a destroyer (there is a great deal of death imagery), it ultimately shows mankind as the winner. This poem exemplifies the idea that man and nature are constantly in battle with each other, though only on a literal level. On a figurative level, it is possible that this poem is allegorizing the relationship between powers, that power is constantly in a cycle, shifting from one force to another.
