A blueberry tree

A blueberry tree, poisonous,
With memories, addictive
Perhaps the fruit, perhaps the laughter,
In the end, a story to forget.
The sunshine which bears
The land’s rich colour,
A smile which bears
The heart’s jubilant colour.
Plucked of the fruit, memories,
A hand softly running through,
Soon fruit met taste,
Soon lips met love.
Winter came, with it, death,
The tree, its blue colour lost,
The two, their love lost,
In the end, a story to forget.
