Prose: "Song of Lammas"

SONG OF LAMMAS

How many blackberries
Will make a pie?
I have picked them;
If you make the pie
We will share it, you and I.

The berries hid
Where rain met dew;
The geese honked
The goldfinch flew,
The eagles squealed as I picked.

How many blackberries will make a pie?

Can summer be found,
Can Lammas last,
In a small black berry?
I taste summer
I taste the harvest...

How many blackberries will make a pie?

I will pick
You will bake
And together we will take
One slice
Then share with friends.

Tell me:
How many blackberries will make a pie?
