Wild Strawberries

 Strawberries that in gardens grow 
 Are plump and juicy fine, 
But sweeter far as wise men know 
 Spring from the woodland vine.
No need for bowl or silver spoon, Sugar or spice or cream, Has the wild berry plucked in June Beside the trickling stream.
One such to melt at the tongue's root, Confounding taste with scent, Beats a full peck of garden fruit: Which points my argument.
May sudden justice overtake And snap the froward pen, That old and palsied poets shake Against the minds of men.
Blasphemers trusting to hold caught In far-flung webs of ink, The utmost ends of human thought Till nothing's left to think.
But may the gift of heavenly peace And glory for all time Keep the boy Tom who tending geese First made the nursery rhyme.

Nursery Rhyme For A Twenty-First Birthday

 You cannot see the walls that divide your hand
From his or hers or mine when you think you touch it.
You cannot see the walls because they are glass, And glass is nothing until you try to pass it.
Beat on it if you like, but not too hard, For glass will break you even while you break it.
Shout, and the sound will be broken and driven backwards, For glass, though clear as water, is deaf as granite.
This fraudulent inhibition is cunning: wise men Content themselves with breathing patterns on it.
