what do these lines mean:
"That day she put our heads together
Fate had her imagination about her,
Your head so much concerned with outer,
Mine with inner, weather."

Poem Analysis: Tree at my Window by Robert Frost

This poem seems to be about a tree that is of some importance to its
author, Robert Frost, but it seems more to me that the tree at his window
is symbolizing someone that he feels comfortable with. In the verse: But
tree, I have seen you taken and tossed, and if you have seen me when I
slept, you have seen me when I was taken and swept, and all but lost, it
represents the well-to-do relationship that Frost and whomever or whatever
the tree stands for. This is an unusual rhyming poem because it rhymes
every two lines. The poem also has a metaphor in it: But let there never be
a curtain drawn. The mood of the poem gives the impression of infatuation
and/or astonishment.
