MULBERRY
[ Also see Trees ]

O, the mulberry-tree is of trees the queen!
  Bare long after the rest are green;
    But as the time steals onwards, while none perceives
      Slowly she clothes herself with leaves--
        Hides her fruit under them, hard to find.
          . . . .
            But by and by, when the flowers grow few
              And the fruits are dwindling and small to view--
                Out she comes in her matron grace
                  With the purple myriads of her race;
                    Full of plenty from root to crown,
                      Showering plenty her feet adown.
                        While far over head hang gorgeously
                          Large luscious berries of sanguine dye,
                            For the best grows highest, always highest,
                              Upon the mulberry-tree.
      - Dinah Maria Mulock (used pseudonym Mrs. Craik),
        The Mulberry Tree
