Maniltoa lenticellata

Maniltoa lenticellata is a flowering tropical tree in the family Fabaceae. It is native to tropical semi-deciduous rainforest and gallery forests in northern Queensland, some of the Torres Strait Islands, New Guinea. Common names include: Silk Handkerchief Tree, Cascading Bean, Native Handkerchief Tree. Maniltoa lenticellata can grow up to 22 m tall but, more only reaches 10–12 m, it has compound leaves with 2-4 pairs of leaflets. New leaves are folded inside dull red bracts and released in a spectacular cascade of white foliage; the fruity-scented flowers which appear in north Queensland in September to October have 3 to 5 white-cream petals, may be pollinated by marsupials or bats. They produce a brown pod 25–70 mm long by 18-50mm containing one brown seed in November to March, it is a favoured garden tree. "Maniltoa lenticellata var. villosa Verdc. from New Guinea differs from var. lenticellata in having ovaries with dense, persistent hairs." Quoted from: Beasley, John.. Plants of Cape York: The Compact Guide.

Trochee

In poetic metre, a trochee, choree, or choreus, is a metrical foot consisting of a stressed syllable followed by an unstressed one, in English, or a heavy syllable followed by a light one in Latin or Greek. In this respect, a trochee is the reverse of an iamb; the adjective form is trochaic. The English word trochee is itself trochaic since it is composed of the stressed syllable followed by the unstressed syllable. Trochee comes from French trochée, adapted from Latin trochaeus from the Greek τροχός, "wheel", from the phrase trokhaios pous "running foot"; the less-often used word choree comes from χορός, khorós, "dance". The phrase was adapted into English in the late 16th century. There was a well-established ancient tradition; when used in drama it is associated with lively situations. One ancient commentator notes that it was named from the metaphor of people running and the Roman metrician Marius Victorinus notes that it was named from its running and speed. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's The Song of Hiawatha, whose meter was taken from Elias Lönnrot's Kalevala, is written entirely in trochees, barring the occasional substitution.

Should you ask me, whence these stories? Whence these legends and traditions, With the odours of the forest, With the dew and damp of meadows,In the second line, "and tra-" is a Pyrrhic substitution, as are "With the" in the third and fourth lines and "of the" in the third. So, the dominant foot throughout the poem is the trochee. Apart from the case of Longfellow's The Song of Hiawatha, this metre is found in perfect examples, at least in English; this is from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven": Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December. Trochaic meter is seen among the works of William Shakespeare: Double, double and trouble. Owing to its simplicity, trochaic meter is common in nursery rhymes: Peter, Peter pumpkin-eater Had a wife and couldn't keep her. Trochaic verse is well known in Latin poetry of the medieval period. Since the stress never falls on the final syllable in Medieval Latin, the language is ideal for trochaic verse; the dies irae of the Requiem mass is an example: Dies irae, dies illa Solvet saeclum in favilla Teste David cum Sibylla.

The Finnish national epic Kalevala, like much old Finnish poetry, is written in a variation of trochaic tetrameter. Trochaic metre is popular in Czech literatures. Vitězslav Nezval's poem Edison is written in trochaic hexameter; the Taylor Swift song "Blank Space" contains examples of trochaic metre in its chorus, responsible for many listeners mishearing part of the lyric as the line "Got a long list of ex-lovers" is forced into an unnatural shape to fit the stress pattern: Got a long list of ex-loversWhere the stress would, in spoken English fall on the'ex' of'ex-lovers', it instead falls on'of' and the first syllable of'lovers', which can confuse on first hearing and cause the mind to try to fit an alternative two-syllable word into the'of ex-' foot. The line is misheard as "All the lonely Starbucks lovers". In Greek and Latin, the syllabic structure deals with long and short syllables, rather than accented and unaccented. Trochaic meter was used by the Latin poets, except in certain passages of the tragedies and the comedies.
