Springtime means
Berry pickin’
In warm sun
Therapeutic
Part of me
Since the womb
Watch for snakes
Bloody fingers
Pick more
Than we can eat
Don’t spill them!
Satisfaction
Numbs backache
Must pick more
Eyes on next bush
We get home
Make berry cereal
The berries look
More red
Than they did
In the field
