In Our Baskets Stick

Image by Alicja from Pixabay

Summer excursion amid tangles

Of sharp-thorned brambles thick

Sweet purple – black fruit to find

And in our baskets stick

It is a joy to scavenge so

But the pales when we compare

To the lovely jam that we will eat

That mother will prepare

  1. Love this. Never went berry-picking myself, but the experience you describe sounds heavenly. I as well adore the imagery in this piece, I can really visualize it. Excellent poem! It is wonderful.
