Mushroom by Emily Dickinson

"Nature alone is antique, and the oldest art a mushroom."
--Thomas Carlyle

Mushroom Delight by Kupula

The Mushroom is the Elf of Plants --
At Evening, it is not --
At Morning, in a Truffled Hut
It stop upon a Spot

As if it tarried always
And yet its whole Career
Is shorter than a Snake's Delay
And fleeter than a Tare --

'Tis Vegetation's Juggler --
The Germ of Alibi --
Doth like a Bubble antedate
And like a Bubble, hie --

I feel as if the Grass was pleased
To have it intermit --
This surreptitious scion
Of Summer's circumspect.

Had Nature any supple Face
Or could she one contemn --
Had Nature an Apostate --
That Mushroom -- it is Him!

Zigana, Sea Salts by Xanna Ziskey

"I am...a mushroom on whom the dew of heaven drops now and then"
--John Ford, The Broken Heart (1633)
