Poem: "Muscadine Days"

This poem is spillover from the August 4, 2015 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] librarygeek. It also fills the square in my 8-1-15 card for the As You Like It Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Polychrome Heroics series.
