LITTLE BOY STOOPS TO PICK STAWBERRIES IN A FIELD NEAR PRUNEDALE, CALIFORNIA 1976 CATHY MURPHYBecause of the photo, Cathy Murphy wrote this poem.
"His bones are soft, they still are growing. It's hot today. Some kids are playing. I hear their laughter rolling in off Monterey Bay. He hears it too, and turns toward the sea, A look of sadness in his eyes. He stoops again to pick the bright red berries."
