Mushroom Hunting

It’s almost fungus season

When mushroom hunters foray

In lonely fields and woodland

Hoping to spot their prey

Foraging for champignons

Puffballs and parasols

Avoiding death and ink caps

Sickeners and false morels

Every fungus is unique

In colour and in form

Some robust, others delicate

In shades of ochre, rust and cream

Frilly gilled and plump of flesh

Egg-shaped, flat and scaly

In shady spots and open rings

Mushrooms are hunted daily
