The poet is prompted to call the sower an ‘august personality’ which means one who has reached the highest position in his workplace.
Explain this using the following point.
Perseverance: The sower's perseverance can be seen when he marches along the plain with determination to sow the seeds and hopes for a good harvest. The poem suggests that the sower is old and must have seen many bad harvests in his lifetime. In spite of this, he continues to persevere. He sows the seeds with the same hope and enthusiasm - that of a good harvest.
