As the twinkling of the last star fades
The morning mists arise
The secrets of the forest lie
Beneath their earthly guise

The mossy duff exudes
An ancient aromatic lure
Of reproductive readiness
Irresistible and pure

A bouquet of love, and want and spice
Rivulets arise
Invisible on morning air Belie
A subterranean surprise

The damp silence, split by echoes
The jingle of a dog
The gravel crunches underfoot
In the eastern mountain fog

The huffing puffing quadruped
Detects the ancient scent
His head snaps to, he drops his nose
To find the hunts intent

He circles against the gradient
Of biochemical diffusion
A miracle of mammalian
Olfactory evolution

A cool dawn breeze amongst the trees
The leaves, the spruce duff rustle
A frantic paw pulls back the moss –
The Appalachian truffle

Speaker

Dr Ben Kable

Veterinarian and truffle hunter/grower

The Kable family farm is home to a ten-acre truffle orchard attempting to produce both Burgundy and Appalachian truffles.
