we ate berries in the summer

we ate berries in the summer
and our health returned
plucking rasps and strawbs
like they were diamonds
in a jeweller's robbery

this soup, you know
will keep you alive
in years to come
it has magic in its warmth

always keep yourself warm when you can

we baked homemade bread
from freshly cut and ground grain
it gave us solidity
wild the cruel winds blew
or dreams to smithereens

berries, soup, bread - remember this
