Treasure Island

David J Lindsay

(1975 / West Yorkshire, England)

Very Berry (or some Ribes in Rhyme)


There's Blackberry, Blueberry,
Northern, Bog and simple Bilberry
Lowbush, Highbush and Mountain Cranberry,
Chokeberry, Dewberry, Elderberry, Guavaberry

Bearberry, Cowberry, Crowberry, Foxberry, Gooseberry and Mooseberry

Huckleberry, Jostaberry, Lingonberry, Loganberry, Myrtle Blueberry, Pineberry, Black Raspberry, Red Whortleberry, Squashberry, Tayberry, Whinberry and Wimberry

Yes, I've written a poem about berries,
But please don't think I'm a prat
'Cos Lennon sang 'Strawberry Fields forever'
And who can argue with that? !

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
