Palms, More Palms, and a Palm Poem!

Guest Poet Andrew Adar wrote this to go with today's post about palms. And it's true, palms are close relatives of corn and turf grass, and cousin of the bamboo. Their stems are fibrous, not woody. They aren't really trees at all, but don't tell the nesting birds!
