Why do you follow me?—

Any moment I can be

Nothing but a laurel-tree.



Any moment of the chase

I can leave you in my place

A pink bough for your embrace.



Yet if over hill and hollow

Still it is your will to follow,

I am off;—to heel, Apollo!

Why do you follow her, when her words could be, nothing more than poetry. You could end up with only dreams of her to embrace. Or she could learn your weakness and use it to kill you. I think that\'s what St. Vincent Millay means.

.: :.

A laurel tree is a poetic symbol; A poet laureate (plural: poets laureate) is a poet officially appointed by a government or conferring institution, who is often expected to compose poems for special events and occasions. It is a very ancient tradition, dating back to the first days of classical civilization, to associate laurel[1] with proficiency in arts and poetry, or with victory.
I don\'t know the significance of the pink bow. It could be a reference to dreams. She could leave you with only dreams and memories to embrace. That could be a double meaning to the tease, and chase.
Apollo helped kill Achilles by guiding the arrow. So, \"Apollo,\" as signified by the comma, is a battle cry. She will strike your weakest spot, is all I can interpret from this.
