Die englische Strauchrose Lady of Shalott ist “sehr winterhart“. Ist das ein Fortschritt oder Zynismus?

She left the web, she left the loom,
She made three paces thro’ the room,
She saw the water-lily bloom,
She saw the helmet and the plume,
       She look’d down to Camelot.
Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack’d from side to side;
“The curse is come upon me,” cried
       The Lady of Shalott.

Alfred Tennyson, 1832.
