The Elderberry Tree
Wanda Bruckner 7-4-2009
"Go round yonder & pick berries-
From that purple tree, The Elderberry!"
Now Grandma had all kinds of fruit trees-
She was pointing to only a weed!
Was I to know that it was fruit-
That'd been the last thing, I'd choose?
"I'm going to make jams & pies-
You're not going to believe your eyes!"
Acting shocked & surprised-
I'd look with eyes opened wide.
Jumping upon the counters, I'd watch-
While I'd look & try not to touch.
She had a yucky, gurgling, purple brew-
This I truly knew!
But my..., how it smelled so fine-
Watching it boiling, losing track of time.
Grandma made the best jams & jellies-
Her homemade biscuits, filled many bellies.
How wonderful it was to watch her cook-
One of the many things, I mistook!
