Drynaria

You defy the sequence of seasons, Drynaria,
sleeping in summer when others bloom;
and when leaves fall and leave the trees bare
you take the stage and fill the living room;
bridging the world of the living and the dead,
and urging new life to rise from their tomb.

Living with Nature, AVRotor
