It's so romantic in a swamp. Who knows why? Even more so if it's a cypress swamp and the water's down so you can walk through it. Then, if you run into a lone tupelo in the midst of said swamp, what more, in terms of special, could you ask for? Horace disagrees, "Who says swamps are romantic?" Then he gets to speaking in Latin describing swamp tupelo vs. black gum and other identifying attributes of swamps. Also, the Creek word for swamp is opilwa. And suddenly, you see why, in fact, swamps can be romantic.
