Nectarous


Lychee blackberry of sweetest variety
Shouts the vendor
They look juicily nice
But when I ask the price
Find it too high.

Why them forgone
Summer's yields live short
I lay my hand on one
They are money's worth.

And I think of my place
In next year's summer days
What if I vacate this space

Nothing forever stays.
