Mesostic Herbarium Plant Labels

Artist and poet Alec Finlay has created beautiful word poems from a wide range of tree, plant and flower names. The poems wonderfully combine creativity with the rules of a set structure - "choose a plant, its name gives a stem; compose a poem, one word per line".

A small selection of plant labels can be seen here. More works are available to view at Ingleby Gallery.
