Problem: The Beauty of the Trees In the poem “The Beauty of the Trees” written by Chief Dan George, The speaker elegantly describes his intimate relationship with nature. By employing devices including parallelism, diction, metaphor, and the incorporation of a wistful, loving tone, George is able to convey the way the speaker communicates with nature and expresses his or her appreciation for it as a whole as well as all of its individual components. In the first three stanzas, each line follows a uniform sentence structure: George describes the quality of some element of nature. “The beauty of the trees,” “the thunder of the sky,” as well as “the trail of the sun,” among others, are parts of nature appreciated by the speaker. This parallelism allows the reader to understand the speaker’s equal appreciation for the listed elements of nature. By listing each part of nature individually he or she appreciates, the intimate connection with nature held by the speaker becomes more obvious. Additionally, the repetition of “speaks to me” at the end of each stanza also helps reinforce the speaker’s conversations with nature. The extended metaphor that is employed through the entire poem constructs the controlling idea of the poem: that the speaker communicates with nature via its constituent parts. The personification of nature’s parts by detailing the ways “they speak to me” facilitates the metaphorical communication between the speaker and nature. This connection represents how the speaker feels about nature, obviously very positively. The speaker’s ability to communicate with nature through the qualities of its parts is only made possible by their deep connection. Beyond the personification of nature, the personification of the speakers “heart” as the conversations with nature allow it to “soar” allow the reader to understand the depth of the relationship. By choosing elegant, positive, tranquil adjectives to characterize each part of nature, George conveys the grace of nature and its ability to be so captivating. By incorporating descriptors like “strength” and “softness,” the speaker’s passion for nature is made known. By allowing the reader to understand this passion for nature held by the speaker, the relationship between the speaker and nature is once again intensified and the purpose of the poem clarified. Throughout the poem George conveys a strong wistful and loving tone. It is developed through the aforementioned extended metaphor and diction. The diction is able to convey the speaker’s in-awe attitude towards nature; by choosing words like “fragrance” and “faintness” the audience understands the captivation. The tone functions to elaborate upon the dynamic of the relationship between the speaker and nature. The subjugation of the speaker by nature is created by the in-awe, admiring tone. By employing tone, parallel structure, peaceful diction, and metaphors, the poet Chief Dan George provides an in-depth description of the speaker’s connection with nature. The relationship is developed throughout the poem and the ability of nature to transcend the speaker is understood by the end of the poem.
