The Purple Berries

The small purple berries,
that are bright and shine,
appear each year,
during the Fall.

The small purple berries,
grow on vines,
under the trees,
in the shade.

The berries look nice,
but if they can be eaten,
is unknown –
  the answer is probably no.

Something must eat the berries,
maybe birds,
maybe some type of insect,
maybe something else.
