I somehow can’t imagine lime trees growing in England. I guess there must have been some, though.
Oh, but they aren’t really lime trees in that poem. It’s an archaic name for a linden tree.
Oh! That makes sense.
I mean, you probably could grow a small lime tree in England if you wanted to.
No, that makes sense. I always thought, “Come on, Coleridge, it’s not so bad being stuck. Have a lime!”
I know! Lie back and have a Corona, or a mojito
'Within Germanic languages, English lithe, German lind ("lenient, yielding") are from the same root.'
does this go for german romantics too??
