Biscuit Brown - Poem by Joyce Carol Thomas

I gather loganberries
From the trailing bush
Dancing prickly sweet
In my sunny backyard

I am biscuit brown
Brown as a biscuit
All warm and waiting
For berries
That I carry
To the kitchen and can

When the berries in the jar
Are biscuit ready
I fix a cup of tea
Then spoon out biscuit jelly
For biscuit brown me
