Editor’s Note: Mr. Bang had a school assignment to write a poem about a fruit. The poem was to have three couplets, a total of 6 lines. He chose to write about an experience he had a couple years ago picking mulberries at the house of some friends in Michigan.
Mulberries taste juicy and sweet
Step on them, they’ll stain your feet
They are skinny, round, and tall
I like to eat them all
Picking them is easy, just tug a little hard
I eat them at my friend in Michigan’s yard
