Subject(s): Skunk Cabbage


The skunk-cabbage rises from the ooze
In places dank and shady, --
But, she is not a flower to choose
For she is not a lady.

Her yellow petals shine and gleam
As gold within the muddy stream,
And like a lily does she seem.

Some lilies rise from dirty slime
As virtue through the midst of crime;
This flower loves her murk and grime...
