—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—
—Laudanumito.

'Within Germanic languages, English lithe, German lind ("lenient, yielding") are from the same root.'

does this go for german romantics too??
