What is the meaning of ‘the flag of breezes free’ in the poem ‘The Heart of the Tree’ by Henry Cuyler Bunner?
By the expression the ‘flag of breezes free’ the poet compares the leafy green branches of a tree to a flag flying freely in the breeze.
As a flag flutters during a gentle breeze, the green leafy branches of the tree also flutter and sway along the breeze.
The leaves are compared with the fluttering flag during a gentle breeze. As the breeze blows the leaves also flutters like the flag providing the fresh air.
