      One of the main ideas for this poem could be that too much of a good thing can be bad. The poem describes the good qualities of the berries, and implies that a lot of the berries are picked due to the sweet flesh and the tastes of summer. When the 'cans were full', the berries were stored and kept for future comsumption. However, because there were so many, the unused portions rotted into fungus, the 'fruit fermented', and the 'sweet flesh would turn sour'. This could relate to any kind of perishable food. Many foods will expire in time, and in this case, time killed the berries and apparently lowered the hopes of the picker.
