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? !
