What is the grammar of the word chariotest?
The verb chariot -- when in the form for second person "thou" - turns into chariotest?

Context:

Ode to the West Wind
1、
O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing,
Yellow, and black, and pale, and hectic red,
Pestilence-stricken multitudes:O thou
Who chariotest to their dark wintry bed
The winged seeds, where they lie cold and low,
Each like a corpse within its grave, until
Thine azure sister of the Spring shall blow
Her clarion o'er the dreaming earth, and fill
(Driving sweet buds like flocks to feed in air)
With living hues and odors plain and hill:
Wild Spirit, which art moving everywhere;
Destroyer and preserver; hear, oh, hear!

Someone who is charioteerer than anybody else? Just speculation on my part.

@oristarA,



Does "Make me thy lyre, even as the forest is:
What if my leaves are falling like its own!" mean
"make me your lyre, or even make me your forest, whose leaves are falling"?


Context:

5 、
Make me thy lyre, even as the forest is:
What if my leaves are falling like its own!

The tumult of thy mighty harmonies
Will take from both a deep, autumnal tone,
Sweet though in sadness. Be thou, Spirit fierce,
My spirit! Be thou me, impetuous one!
Drive my dead thoughts over the universe
Like withered leaves to quicken a new birth!
And , by the incantation of this verse,
Scatter, is from an unextinguished hearth
Ashes and sparks, my words among mankind!
Be through my lips to unawakened earth
The trumpet of a prophecy! O Wind,
If Winter comes , can Spring be far behind?[1]

@oristarA,
Percy Bysshe Shelley's manuscript of Ode to the West Wind. Is there any clearer version? I failed to see anything on it. Can you?

Thou breakest my heart with incessant interrogatory.
