"Lingonberry Love" - A Poem of a Berry and Its Jam
Lingonberry, lingonberry jam,
I thought you would be bland.
Now you're simply a berry
In which intrigued me in a way so grand.
Fun berry; my new love berry,
On my taste buds quite sweet;
On cinnamon bread - toasted -
You're amusing to eat.
With each bite
I'm enchanted even more.
Lingonberry in my Swedish jam,
You're a berry from fairytale lore.
I discovered a sweet tooth
For lingonberries and lingonberry jam.
I thought it would be sour
But every mouthful is a grand slam.
