Rowdy Rowan

Rowdy Rowan,
Romping rich,
Lip red bunches;
Tempting pickings,
Brazenly dangling,
Robins’ deliriously
Pecking
Nature’s
Autumnal luncheon.

Rowan berries are loved by birds, particularly robins, however they are toxic to humans and dogs I believe when eaten raw. However, when cooked they are delicious in a jelly.
