Standing tall in it’s stately manner,
curved at the top and rich purple grapes
growing up the trellis and overhead,
prolific with fruit and beautiful to see;
in just weeks all that plump fruit
will be cleaned and boiled down,
sugar added, and poured into
small glass jelly jars –
winter provisions
for a hungry family.
