i think this poem is about any girl, and the author uses the tree as a way
of expressing its comunion with the girl, and the world failing to the
understand the love which ties him to the girl, thinks its all folly or
somethig like that, besides, its only my interpretation, and good poems are
good because they have so many cool interpretations, diversity generates
cultural richness

Methinks the girl in question is Ezra's daughter. When she enters his
hands, she has been delivered to him (birthed). She becomes a part of him.
"So high you are" implies that Ezra reveres the girl. The folly is about
how he thinks no one in the world could understand the relationship
betweeen him and his girl.
No, ezra is not a woman's name. Do you know any women named Ezra? Just
because it ends with an 'a' does not mean it's necessarily a woman.

i like this poem, but i'm not quite sure why, it speaks to my heart but i'm
not sure what it's saying

I really don't think this poem is meant to parallel traditional mythology.
Pound typically shied away from this; often he utilized later models, such
as Dante's Inferno.

hhhhhmmmm i guess i take the poem at face value. A girl feels so deeply.
she is what she experiences the tree, the flower, the whatever and the
world cannot understand
