“Let’s git going”, Granny said, “Daylight’s wastin’!”
Hot already, sun beats down
Picking berries, filling buckets
“Careful”, she cautions, “watch for snakes!”
Sweat rolls, bugs bite, briar scratch
And finally home; but not to rest!
Pump some water, clean and sort.
She chucks wood into the old stove,
Steaming hot! What’s the point,
I wonder, filling up the jars.
Lids tight, into boiling water.
Then I know!
When these red jewels mix with
A bowl with
Flour, lard, deft use of rolling pin
Cobbler in the oven.
Sweet taste of summer
Watching the snow drift down.
