6. The Ivy Green
"Whole ages have fled, and their works decayed, and nations have scattered been; But the stout old ivy shall never fade from its hale and hearty green. The brave old plant in its lonely days shall fatten upon the past; Fot the stateliest building man can raise is the ivy's food at last. Creeping on where time has been a rare old plant is the ivy green."
Charles Dickens.
