The Main Theme
What i gained from reading this is that people can be both a part of nature and society by being in control of there surroundings
in my opinion the theme was that the author wanted to be free like a cloud being able to be part of anything and still feel at home and being a part of anything "Sunbeam-proof, i hang like a roof the mountians its columns be"
The poetic elements
To me the Tone is one of longing the author wants to be at peace while finding harmony no matter where he is
