    transplanted

    transplanted =?


    Context:

    Tender orchid-leaves in spring
    And cinnamon- blossoms bright in autumn
    Are as self- contained as life is,
    Which conforms them to the seasons.
    Yet why will you think that a forest-hermit,
    Allured by sweet winds and contented with beauty,
    Would no more ask to-be transplanted
    Than would any other natural flower?

    ?

    Setting = a place?

    Hermit is a man, he removes his home to another place?

    Re: ?

    Setting = a place? Yes

    A hermit is a very poor person living simply in a rural setting away from humanity.
