Mushrooms….
I love mushrooms.
I’ve been hunting morels
Each day for a week.
And today I found some–
Did you hear me shriek?
Now my mouth is packed with mushrooms cheek to cheek.

Beat it, Bub!
No, I won’t share with you!
Don’t care if you
Love mushrooms, too–
Sue me!

Heaven…
I’m in heaven.
And my mouth’s so full
It’s impolite to speak.
And I know I’ve found
The happiness I seek
When my mouth is packed with mushrooms cheek to cheek.

First of the season. Only found a few today–enough to bread and fry and, because I’m better than my song, to share with Charlie and Mom. The season has begun! Stand back!
