Looking at the use of figurative language, how does the speaker in the poems connect to nature?

Canoes are dancing near the shore.

The sun is smiling down.

The morning is a gentle hand

That wipes away my frown.

The Wind

The wind is cold and strong and cruel.

It tells me just what I must do.

I wear my mittens and my hat.

Well, I ask, now, wouldn’t you?

Unsatisfied, it gives a roar

Of great displeasure and demands

I put on more and more and more

By grabbing me with ice-cold hands.

And so I turn and back I go

To find a scarf and warmer socks.

It claims it must come in with me.

I keep it out with chains and locks.


The breezes kiss the treetops as they pass

And make the leaves fall softly to the ground.

The branches tremble slightly but no more;

A gentle sighing is their only sound.

The leaves invite me then to romp and play

Among their red and yellow colors bright.

I rake them all into a pile and jump,

Until the day is chased away by night.

I find it odd that autumn comes so late,

For one finds so much freshness every day.

The air is crisp and clear and full of hope.

“A new beginning now!” the breezes say. A.
The speaker connects with nature through personification.

The speaker connects with nature by saying how good it always is.

The speaker connects with nature by describing its colors and beauty.

The speaker connects with nature through nature\'s point of view.
