A Crafty Gentleman - Ginseng digger's diary by Lee Murray

4 Ways to Cooperate with Nature

Who will speak for the plants
 The gentle flowers cloistered
 in quiet meadow and lonely wood
Plants whose power is in their softness
Or in their strange difference?

  Grandfather Ginseng will take the stand!
In the country and the town, the reputation of this
gentleman is known to all. Bold, vigorous,
crafty and tough, he's older than the mountains but
he feels just like a newborn child.
