I think of thee !--my thoughts do twine and bud

About thee, as wild vines, about a tree,

Put out broad leaves, and soon there 's nought to see

Except the straggling green which hides the wood.

Yet, O my palm-tree, be it understood

I will not have my thoughts instead of thee

Who art dearer, better ! Rather, instantly

Renew thy presence; as a strong tree should,

Rustle thy boughs and set thy trunk all bare,

And let these bands of greenery which insphere thee

Drop heavily down,--burst, shattered, everywhere !

Because, in this deep joy to see and hear thee

And breathe within thy shadow a new air,

I do not think of thee--I am too near thee.

Basically, the poem is about the narrator wishing his or her lover to be near, and to be naked. This could represent a deep need to return to the Garden of Eden, and the way of life prior to the eating of the fruit from the tree of knowledge. After eating the fruit, Adam and Eve became aware of their nakedness, but before, they were ignorant to it.
"Rustle thy boughs and set thy trunk all bare,
And let these bands of greenery which insphere thee
Drop heavily down,--burst, shattered, everywhere !"
This quote from the poem may mean that the narrator doesn't want clothing to ever return, and wants their lover to remain nude forever.
In contrast, the narrator could be talking about God, or Jesus rather than a lover, and the poem could illustrate the narrator's need to be close to God in the Garden of Eden, without the need for clothing.
