Scumping

Scrumping blackberries
from my neighbour's bush
overhanging our garden.
She has moved on,
the house is empty,
shame to waste them!

Along the Hedgerows

Along the hedgerows
blackberries, damsons, greengages,
not yet ripe.

Memory 7

Down the lane I see
the blackberries are not yet ripe.
I used to gather hedgerow fruits
with my Dad, for him to make wine.
