Comment upon the poet's love for the casuarina tree.
The poet claims that she loves the casuarina tree not of its magnificence but because it was dear to her soul. She further says that she have played under that tree with her sweet companions whom she had love intensely, who were more dearer than life to her but are now in blessed sleep (which means they're already dead). Therefore, she says that her love for the tree will remain forever irrespective of the time till the last moment of her life for the sake of her sweet companions, which she is referring to her childhood siblings.
