Sugar or spice or cream,
Has the wild berry plucked in June
Beside the trickling stream.

Where ye gather in simmer the berries sae black,
Was hid as if ta'en away.

Burst the bridges and spread into bays;

And hills are hidden by rainy haze;

Autumn colors, gay and sober,
And the Indian-girl, October,
Wampum-like in berries decked,
Sits beside the leaf-strewn streams,--
All the land is one with dreams.

The bee dreams in the cherry bloom
That sways above the berry bloom;
The katydid grates where she's hid
In leafy deeps of dreary gloom:
The forming dew is globing on the grasses,
Like rich spilled gems of some dark queen that passes.
"Falerina" by Madison Julius Cawein
O a' the ills that come to swall a wearit mither's grief,
The warst is when her laddie winna tak' his senna leaf;
An' here I've stood this ae half-hour, the berries in the spune,
An' yet he winna drink it up to get them when it's dune.
"The Bowl O' Senna Leaf" by Alexander Anderson
