A Gustatory Achievement

A poem by James Whitcomb Riley

Last Thanksgivin'-dinner we
Et at Granny's house, an' she

Had - ist like she alluz does -
Most an' best pies ever wuz.

Canned black burry-pie an' goose
Burry, squshin'-full o' juice;
An' rozburry - yes, an' plum -
Yes, an' churry-pie - um-yum!

Peach an' punkin, too, you bet.
Lawzy! I kin taste 'em yet!
Yes, an' custard-pie, an' mince!

* * * * *

An' - I - ain't - et - no - pie - since!
