My interpretation is: When one loves a girl as much, her personality and
person grows on you, envelopes you, and possesses you, much like moss's
effect on a tree. Another facet - the beauty of trees, comparable to the
beauty of a girl. I don't find the poem difficult to interpret - it leaves
much room for creative interpretation.

When I first read this, I was blown away.
I remember being on a bus driving through the country when I was sitting
reading it as we passed some lone trees in a farm field.

A child - so high - you are,
I just not so much realize this sentence. :(
