Late Bloomers

Walking through the swale today
I saw a lovely sight
Almost all the trees had leaves
Or small buds green and bright

Persimmon, paw-paw, cherry
Chestnut, apple too
Pecans and red raspberry
And redbuds, just a few

Green cherries hang down heavy
On happy little trees
This fall we’ll have a bevvy
Of fruit to share and freeze

A warning to the creepers
That prowl each day and night
We don’t play finders keepers
This fruit is mine, alright?!


A late bloomer! Almost all of the trees I thought were dead now have leaves or tiny buds.


I sure hope we get to pick these cherries!
