More elderberries

Worth noting.

Journal entry, August 9, 1854
"To Boston. 'Walden' published. Elder-berries. Waxwork yellowing."
                                                                Henry David Thoreau

One hundred sixty years ago
Came on the scene.
A man of few words:
Henry David Thoreau.
A man
After my heart.
My elderberries
Have long since
Gone to the birds.
His elderberries
Were worth noting,
Next to Walden
And of course
A trip to Boston.
