Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes–
The rest sit around and pluck blackberries.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aurora Leigh, 1857

But I LIKE blackberries… What’s so ungodly about blackberries? A bush crammed with blackberries is pretty heavenly, I’d say. Though I wouldn’t recommend picking them in your bare feet.
