  • 10. Writing about imagery In this poem Hughes uses personification to make the wind sound alive when he writes that it was stampeding the fields. The word stampeding makes the wind seem strong and noisy because it creates an image of a herd of wild animals, like buffalo or elephants, racing across the landscape. A herd of stampeding animals would be an unstoppable and frightening force. This helps the reader understand how powerful and loud the wind is.
