Speaker Point of View

Who is the speaker, can she or he read minds, and, more importantly, can we trust her or him?

The speaker of the poem is an Oread, a nymph of the mountains and grottoes (yes, grottoes) from Greek mythology. We don't ever find out her name, but we do know that she's quite a demanding character. The entire poem consists of her commanding the sea.
