Red Ripe Cherries
Almost Midsummer Morning



When I sound the fairy call,
Gather here in silent meeting,
Chin to knee on the orchard wall,
Cooled with dew and cherries eating.
Merry, merry,
Take a cherry;
Mine are sounder,
Mine are rounder,
Mine are sweeter.
For the eater
When the dews fall.
And you’ll be fairies all.
Robert Graves

  1. I am a bit puzzled: The image here looks different from what it should be looking.
    If you click on it, it will look how I intended it.
    Same puzzle with my profile picture that for a few days now looks much lighter and with a rosy glow. *scratcheshead*

  2. Yes, it looks better if you click it! Most odd!

    1. Yes, odd. I have not changed any of my procedures or settings.

    1. Oh, that is a true bummer!
      I hope you'll find at least some sweet cherries at a farmers market in your neighbourhood, Sue!

      Did you also notice the difference once you clicked on it?

  6. Looks as if Blogger has more problems than one today. Was unable to publish this morning.
