The Raspberry



Oh jewel of a fruit

From shrub do you hang

Juicy wee drupelets

With a sweet little tang


The summer is perfect

With all that you need

Abundance of sun

Gladly nurtures your seed


Swarthy and meddling

Your roots slyly spread

Soon bushels are growing

All peppered with red


Though thorny your stems

In your high tunnel bramble

We shan’t be deterred

Through your arches we ramble


And we are rewarded

With the most tasty treat

My pail remains empty

For I can’t wait to eat


Pies, jams and compotes

A buckle or cake

With sugar and cream

Like my gram used to make


For this bauble of berry

My love can’t go deeper

Aught embodies summer

Like this fruit-laden creeper
