Strawberry, Strawberry, Strawberry
Are wild strawberries really wild?
Will they scratch and adult, will they snap at a child?
Should you pet them, or let them run free where they roam?
Could they ever relax in a steam heated home?
Can they be trained not to growl at the guests?
Will a litterbox work or would they leave a mess?
Can we make them a Cowberry, herding the cows,
Or maybe a Muleberry pulling the plows,
Or maybe a Huntberry chasing the grouse,
Or maybe a Watchberry guarding the house,
And though they may curl up at your feet oh so sweetly,
Can you ever feel that you trust them completely?
Or should we make a pet out of something less scary,
Like the Domestic Prune or the Imported Cherry,
Anyhow, you’ve been warned and I will not be blamed
If your Wild Strawberry cannot be tamed.
Your post gave me a smile and reminded me of all the tiny wild strawberries that we had growing throughout our orchard in New Hampshire.
I have them growing all through my flower gardens. they were there before I moved in 23 years ago!
