Even before reading who the author was, I felt from the title that this was your poem! The photo, and the poem are both wonderful. I can feel the burst of the berry and the gratefulness for all things in the simple act of eating a berry.

I think you borrowed the meter and some of the message from
the hymn. I like that you mention eating just one berry, as if offering the rest for others to partake in. Sharing the bounty. Very in keeping with your message.
You have a wonderful knack, Brooke, for saying big things with little berries.

Peace, Lee

A delightful poem, Brooke. The alliteration in your title immediately had my mouth watering. I also liked the musical sound of the "brook that burbles by". This reminded me of a walk I used to take bordered by mulberry trees. I enjoyed grabbing a few ripe ones to enjoy along the way. Thanks for sharing. Linda

Dear Brooke,
Your charming poem and more particularly your Notes tell us why rhythm and cadence is so important in poetry. It appeals to the inner us and that is why hymns resonate with it.
Regards
Reg

This work has reached the exceptional level
Nature and creation is a gift
A gift we can all share
These berries would be yummy
To eat and satisfy ones appetite.

The gifts that God gives us all
Can be so special in every way.

And I'm gulping down this delicious poetic juice from you, Brooke. There is no elixir like it that I've ever read in my four years on this site; you demonstrate total mastery of this medium. What a lovely, creative mind, that can thank our Creator in such lovely lines. :) Peter

    I didn't analyze it, though you know I didn't miss a thing. I thought of you and your morning orange juice. Go with the light, young lady. :) Peter

Another wonderful poem full of natural feelings which represent the writer's awe and respect for nature. I especially like 'No chef could proffer more than this on which I'm dining' Who can argue with the saying 'the best things in life are free' after that? Alexis x

If we were all so thankful, for the sweet pleasure, of the gifts we have been given, we would smile much more often. your verse always make the end of my day joyful. thanks for the reminder of how it all works together. oh, and the poetry, was lovely as well; meter. and tone, were spot on. I believe poets to be the best Witter we can read. your verses really are marvelous thanks Brooke for sharing and brightening my day your poetry is becoming a habit I will not soon break

Rob
