Mummified

Mummified in icy tomb,

Petrified in snowy case;

Sleeping deep in winter’s womb,

Snuggled down ‘neath quilted lace.

Drowser, nap the cold away,

Tucked and bundled in your bed;

Dream of Spring’s approaching day

As  fairer visions fill your head.

The irony, the irony!  The common name of this plant?  “Snow in Summer”…
