Ginkgo Poem Howard Nemerov
Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri has several Ginkgo trees growing on its campus. Well-known is its Ginkgo Walk, that became the inspiration for WashU former professor Howard Nemerov to write his famous poem The Consent; he loved the Ginkgo Walk.
The path leads from the Brookings Quad to the rest of the campus - and directly to Olin Library.

Oliver Sacks wrote about this poem in The New Yorker of November 24, 2014: Night of the Ginkgo.
