Star of Illini,
mountain princess bold,
cradling moon and stars
in outstretched hands you hold
early moonbeams which throw
glints in your eye
as you save the past for the future
and claim life for those who die.



NaPoWriMo — Day Five:   Spend some time looking at the names of heirloom plants and write a poem that takes its inspiration from, or incorporates the name of one or more of these garden rarities.

This was more difficult (for me) than it sounded.  Can you pick out the four names of heirloom plants?  😉
