Ground Cedar -- Lycopodium spp., Clubmoss Family.
'A small grove massacred to the last ash,
An oak with heart-rot, give away the show;
This great society is going smash;
They cannot fool us with how fast they go,
How much they cost each other and the gods!
A culture is no better than its woods.' ~ from "Bucolics: II Woods" by Wystan Hugh Auden, August 1952.
