At the market baskets piled high
Without a doubt! Will catch your eye!
Blueberries by the pints and quarts
Visions of desserts! Your instant thoughts!

Blueberry Crumble & Cobblers to be baked
Don't forget the trifle! For heaven's sake!
Blueberry Dumplings an old fashioned treat
Homemade Blueberry jam! That can't be beat!

Blueberry Muffins also on your baking list
Blueberry Ice Cream! A traditional dish!
Latticework blueberry pie cooling on the sill
Hot Blueberry Biscuits! A breakfast thrill!

Blueberries are beneficial in many ways
So go ahead! Eat a ton! You'll be okay!
It is just hearsay and not the least bit true
That from head to toe! You will turn blue!

I've eaten Blueberries since “Grant took Richmond”
And each and every July! It is still my whim!
