The previous comment is a potential way to take the poem, but the poem
itself does not assert itself to that necessary interpretation. There is
nothing within the poem that suggests that it refers to HD as a female
poet, instead these are just common substitutes for the images of the poem.
Instead the poem is the result of the imagist movement, where these
singular substitutes are not necessary. Instead of trying to convey an
actual reason that HD feels this way in the poem, the poem is merely meant
to capture the emotion that she is feeling. This emotion is a common one
of the modernist era, a fragmented and isolated feeling, and this feeling
is not only described in the words of the poem, but also mirrored in its
structure and sound. (This is in response to the previous comment that
suggests that the poem is directly referring to HD's struggle as a woman,
while this is possible, there is nothing in the poem that suggests that
this is directly correlated to the piece)

This poem is about H.D feeling inferior as a woman poet. The seeds
mentioned throughout the poem are a symbol of herself and her thoughts. The
seeds are scattered around in different places like her, because she is
confused. The tree mentioned in the poem is a symbol of a man. Men were the
main poets and writers at the time so they had more strength than her. The
tree could also be a symbol for Pound, whom H.D was engaged to at one
point. He also gave H.D her pen name. She could have been feeling powerless
to him at the time.
