What on earth is this?
St. John hath told me what to do:
To search and find the ferns that grow
The fern seed that the faeries know;
Then sprinkle fern seed in my shoe,
And haunt the steps of you, my dear,
And haunt the steps of you.
Have you ever zoomed into a fern seed? Wow, when full grown, ripe to discover the world below, they actually look like a bunch of worms, crying for freedom. Did you know?
''Osmunda regalis'', the Old World Royal fern, is a species of ''Osmunda'', native to Europe, Africa, and Asia, growing in woodland bogs and on the banks of streams. The species is sometimes known as flowering fern due to the appearance of its fertile fronds.
