A flower may be the most beautiful and overlooked peice of nature. Cherrish
it while it lasts for by the change of each seaon it may dissapate only to
become a desire. Perhaps Freneau knew of a beauty that only nature could
describe, provoked by the insincerity of the british people.

Philip Freneau,in this poem, was expressing his dream of a paradise in
nature, or rather, on the new continent of America. His dream was the
originality of the paradise on the earth,i.e, USA. The wild honey suckle is
something of freedom, tranquility,nature, and of no convention, no
suppression,no traditional or anything beyond the pure nature. This poem is
not only a mere desciption of nature, but something ideal in the poet's
construction of a real paradise of humanbeings. This paradise is of real
freedom, pure nature, total independence, grand beauty. As we know, Freneau
was against the British interference in the independence of the new land,
and was hoping to establish a real free country of the people on the new
Continent. So in my opinion, this poem was in fact the beautiful bode of a
paradise in nature(on the earth) ,in very brief and true words. This
paradise is independent without meeting any vicious interference, beautiful
without catering to any viewer,
tranquil but fearful of no hardships, wild in nature without any vulgar
