dear experts or dear freinds explain this stanza with reference and context.

so hack and chop

but this alone wont do it.

not so much pain will do it.

the bleeding bark will heal

and from close to the ground

will rise curled green twigs,

miniature boughs

which if unchecked will expand again

to former size.

A woodcutter may hack cut or chop with repeated and regular blows, but still this cannot destroy the tree completely. The tree does not seem to feel any kind of pain because the bleeding bark seems to heal all the time. The trunk of the tree that is close to the ground will produce curled green twigs that grows from the tiny branches which are called boughs. If their growth is not checked, then they will expand again and grow to their former sizes.
