From "A Florida Sunday." by Sidney Lanier:
High roofs of temples shafted tall with pines -- Green, grateful mangroves where the sand-beach shines --
I can't make sense of what exactly shafted tall means here.
tr.v. shaft·ed, shaft·ing, shafts 1. To equip with a shaft. 2. Slang To treat in a harsh, unfair way: "He had been shafted by the press quite a bit" (Frank Deford). 3. Slang To penetrate (someone) sexually.
Not only the use of the verb doesn't make sense, but the adverb tall doesn't make any sense either in this context unless I am missing something.
