Does Henry Bunner’s poem The heart of the tree hold any importance in our day? Discuss.
Through this simple poem the poet Henry Cuyler Bunner delivers his message that a tree not only helps us survive in this world, but also brings us an ethereal joy, secures the life of our future generations and has a direct connection to a nation’s growth. Plantation is also a symbolic act of goodness that can inspire many other people do good to others. Thus this message is universal and time-won — true for all nations and all times.
Moreover, in this 21st century, in an age where rapid and reckless development and urbanisation are taking their toll on the Environment, this becomes quite relevant. Though written over a century ago, this poem continues to prove its relevance and inspire people to plant trees even today.
