Where the voice of the wind calls our wandering feet, Through echoing forest and echoing street, With lutes in our hands ever-singing we roam, All men are our kindred, the world is our home. Our lays are of cities whose lustre is shed, The laughter and beauty of women long dead; The sword of old battles, the crown of old kings, And happy and simple and sorrowful things. What hope shall we gather, what dreams shall we sow? Where the wind calls our wandering footsteps we go. No love bids us tarry, no joy bids us wait: The voice of the wind is the voice of our fate." By Sarojini Naidu
Cibotium glaucum is a Hawaiian endemic tree fern. It is particularly abundant on the island of Hawai'i, but is found on all the major Hawaiian Islands. It is most common is moist to wet forests at elevations ranging from 1,500 to 5,000 feet. Over harvesting for orchid media and landscape use and clearing for development have drastically reduced the populations even on the island of Hawaii. The trunk of the tree fern Cibotium glaucum is most often 6 to 10 feet tall, but it can reach 25 feet. This tree fern tends to be shorter at elevations above 4,800 feet. The diameter of mature trunks ranges from 8 inches to 2 feet.
The fronds of Cibotium glaucum arch and can grow as long as 9 feet. They are smooth and whitish underneath. They are singly divided, but the divisions are deeply lobed. Soft, golden hairs cover the young fronds and the stalks of mature fronds. The spores form in pouches at the ends of the small veins.
