precious harvest

To the market place she went,
with baskets of strawberries in tow.

Although, she couldn't shake
the uncomfortable feeling 
she had in selling her precious harvest.

"Just one more " , she said. 

Twenty minutes later, all were gone.
So sad was she to see them go,
but so happy to be at the market for more.
