Synonyms: trees

Preanalysis assumption: “tree” is an obvious penisin erection symbol. Its purple glans makes it frequently an “appletree” or a mapletree in autumn colors. Because it so obviously can symbolize penis, Emily was more or less under compulsion to invent a female meaning for the symbol, for camouflage. In that sense “tree”, like “woods” may stay for a feeling of erection within vagina, during orgasmic arousal. The spreadout, prone position of the female during intercourse also could be expressed by the tree symbol, its branching out of limbs, but this would be an outer aspect of the heterosexual coital spectacle, Emily very seldom lays the stage, upon which the poems’ drama is enacted, outside the labia mayor.
