Canary Isles and Cape Verde Group
Poorly fare lichens in polluted air.
Heat polluted air more sudden acid there.
When once lichen cover all fully gone
Their garden’s rocks now dissolve full forlorn.
Dissolve, dissipate blue litmus to red;
Now plot full circle in globe’s warming bed.
Archel and Archil and Orchill and all
West over the waters off Senegal.
Litmus borne lichens off Canary’s Spain
But none to be found on the Spanish Main.
Forget not the rocks of Netherlands forum
L.tortarea and R.tinctorum.
There was only one air.
