Strawberry Harvest

Verse
How long ago it must have been,
since I plucked from scarlet fen?
The fruits I gathered on those days,
have blossomed into sunlit rays.

Personal Text
When I was 14 years old I worked for a summer picking strawberries, to earn some cash. I saved it and, at 20, decided to use the money to buy a diamond, so I could propose to my girlfriend. My mom said: “Are you sure you want to buy that diamond? Remember, this is your strawberry-picking money you’ve saved all these years.” I said I was sure. Years later, when I had more money, I asked my wife if she would like to upgrade the diamond to something bigger. She said: “No way. You bought me this stone with your strawberry money. That makes it more special than any other diamond could ever be.”

That summer working in the fields, I thought it was about strawberries. In fact, it was about a wife, three kids, five grandchildren, and the 70th anniversary we celebrated last year. All in all, a very good harvest.
