It's not part of the locals' side dishes. :(

When most of the occupants (read: dogs + one man) in the house were napping in the noon and today being a Sunday, I have the opportunity to finish the mushrooms I set out to do and putting them up on brooch pins.

I did a search for a mushroom theme poetry and learn about Emily Dickinson. Interesting story about her. Will find time to read up all on her as the main characters of this house are currently awake and "pestering" me!

Here it goes, the poem:

The Mushroom Is The Elf Of Plants
(Emily Dickinson)

The Mushroom is the Elf of Plants—
At Evening, it is not—
At Morning, in a Truffled Hut
It stop upon a Spot

As if it tarried always
And yet its whole Career
Is shorter than a Snake’s Delay
And fleeter than a Tare—

’Tis Vegetation’s Juggler—
The Germ of Alibi—
Doth like a Bubble antedate
And like a Bubble, hie—

I feel as if the Grass was pleased
To have it intermit—
This surreptitious scion
Of Summer’s circumspect.

Had Nature any supple Face
Or could she one contemn—
Had Nature an Apostate—
That Mushroom—it is Him!
