Kindly loaned to the University of London by Allied London.
"My roots go down to the depths of the world, through earth dry brick, and damp earth, through veins of lead and silver. I am all fibre."
"I am green as a yew tree in the shade of the hedge. My hair is made of leaves. I am rooted to the middle of the earth. My body is a stalk. I press the stalk."

"The roots make a skeleton on the ground, with dead leaves heaped in the angles."
