Explanation:
 
Stanza \(7\) depicts the child's father's determination to climb the tree. The child's mother cautioned him again about the tree's wobbliness. Nonetheless, the child's father remained adamant about climbing the tree; and, the branch was broken, as the child's mother had stated.
 
Stanza \(8\) describes how the children's father fell heavily when the branch was broken. The child's mother, who was terrified and disappointed, pleaded with her husband to end the trials. She was afraid that his efforts would result in breaking his neck.
