Northampton Farmers Market  May 2 – November 14, 2015

Winter was gone

     May an easy chair for us
        Sunny days a prayer to us
           You were bouquet and asparagus

Our love was young
     So were you

Days grew long

     we sweltered in the marriage suite
        to love I fell and all I cared to eat
           was your melons, your berries sweet

Love was tongue
     and honeydew

You are gone

     When last we met you were hardly there
        Our past was not yet stark and bare
           I gasped, I wept upon your Bartlett pear

Our love was young
     And now is through
