This is my song for the raspberries
It comes without a tune
But my song is a delicious one
Though they’re eaten all too soon.
This is a song about raspberries
They’re growing out the back
Safe in a net, hidden from birds
My perfect little snack.
I quite like this seedy song
You bitter sweet tang of berry
The tune on my tongue is a happy one
I wish it would last longer – very.
Baby face is covered
In tracks of goey fest
The delight in her eyes is a telling one…
Puts my sharing to the test.
I hope this song continues
For another week or two
I wish I had a magic trick
To extend this delightful coup.
But the berry season just has to end
Like this rhyming wit
I hope you’ll join me in a prayer
In thanks for this classic hit.
