Just the Berries
                for Mary Rhode

The logan, the lingon,
The blue, the black,
The rasp, the bar,
The cran, the hack.

The bil, the cow,
The pea, the yew,
The holly, the june,
The white, the dew.

The dog, the bog,
The checker, the box,
The coral, the deer,
The pepper, the fox.

The elder, the service,
The straw, the huckle,
The wolf, the bear,
The honey suckle.

The mul, the bay,
All these are Mary’s.
Sweet or sour, she’s
Just the berries.
