The Bramble has dealt me finger sores,
Fruit juice and blood on sensitive pores,
Blackberry preserve stick and sweet,
Sunday delicious for five o'clock treat.

Don't pick the red ones, mother would shout,
Leave till next week, black ripened are out,
Save some for Bramley's, soft crusted bake,
Forage and plunder all you can take.

Hi Kevin. Enjoyed your poem. Brought back many fond memories of blackberrying, removing the grubs and boiling down to make the jam. Tony
