NCERT Class 9 Beehive English Poem - On Killing a Tree

Poem - On Killing a Tree

Writer of the poem - Gieve Patel
Summary

The poet Gieve Patel through his poem, ‘On Killing a Tree’ sensitises the reader and highlights the fact that trees are living things too. He equates tress to humans to convey that trees should not be cut because destroying trees is just like killing human beings. A tree does not die by a mere jab of a knife.

The poet ventures further to explain how the tree is firmly anchored to the soil. It takes in years of sunlight, water and air to grow into a strong tree with numerous leaves.

Humans cut and chop the bark of trees into many pieces for various utility purpose, but that is not sufficient to kill a tree. The part of the tree that gets cut down gives out ‘sap’ just like how humans bleed and then gradually the wound would heal and from those new branches would start growing once again.

The poet says that a tree has to be uprooted and that is only way to destroy it. One has to separate the tree from the Earth which supports it. Once the tree has been uprooted, over a period of time, It withers and gradually dries up with the action of heat and wind and finally the tree is wiped out completely from the face of the Earth (They get destroyed).

Similarly, social evils cannot be put out by criticising as they are deeply engrained in the society.
