Berrying

 "May be true what I had heard,
Earth's a howling wilderness
Truculent with fraud and force,"
Said I, strolling through the pastures,
And along the riverside.
Caught among the blackberry vines, Feeding on the Ethiops sweet, Pleasant fancies overtook me: I said, "What influence me preferred Elect to dreams thus beautiful?" The vines replied, "And didst thou deem No wisdom to our berries went?"
