In Henry Cuyler Bunner’s poem The Heart of the Tree the poet sees the trees as the ‘glory of the plain’. As the hills and rocks make a mountainous area beautiful, trees hold the beauty of the plain land. Without trees, a plain would resemble a desert without any rain and cultivation. Tree brings tender rain and gives cool shade, bears fruit and feeds us, decorates the earth with beautiful flowers and their fragrance. They resemble flying flags on high shafts in mild breeze. Trees give shelter to sweet singing birds and other animals. Thus trees not only make the plain area aesthetically beautiful, but also help keep the ecosystem rolling. That is why Henry Bunner says the man who plants a tree also plants the glory of the plain.
