Trillium's Feathery Fronds
In the Wild Flower garden, it was time to recite,
As they did for their own entertainment.
It happened to be a warm Saturday night,
And Trill shows a lack of containment!
'The feathery fronds of the flowering ferns,
Of the Filmy Fern family bear fruit.
The feathery fronds of the Fragrant Fern family,
Are commonly found and acute!
The feathery fronds of the Fiddle-head Ferns,
Are segmented and reddish-brown.
The finger-like fronds of the Curly Grass Fern,
In Newfoundland Province are found.
The feathery fronds of the Cinnamon Fern,
Are Fiddle-head duplications.
The feathery fingers of the circular fronds,
Of the Maiden-hair Ferns are gradations.
The feathery fronds of the Wooly Lip Fern,
Should only be kissed by a lamb.
Another Lip Fern is found on the rocks,
From Virginia to Alabam'.
Unquote she, full smilingly!
These ferny green families, if you'd care to learn,
Can be found in a wild flower book.
Or, on the computer, just search for the fern,
And take a botanical look.
