Plum, plum you are fun
Purple and plump for me
Tastes as sweet as sugar
A delicate little treat
Lemon is bitter it’s safe to say, a different kind of fruit
But with all the uses the lemon does have
He is the most used
Oval and yellow, with a rind zest
Lemon is best squeezed
Use his juices to smother pancakes
Or do with him as you please.
Bitter and sweet is the cherry treat
She’s one of nature’s surprises
Bright and red and its easily said
In a yogurt she quite suffices.
Pears ripe and ready
Green and golden treats
Very soft and tasty
What other fruit competes?
Blackberry born on a bed of thorns
Delicious when they aren’t red
Pick them all carefully in the briars
And put them in a jam for your bread!
Cranberries are small and round
They are the color red
Sweet and bitter it’s quite strange
But very good for your head!
Raspberries, not the blowing kind
Are sweet, delicious and red
They are lovely in a jam
Or to spread on your toast and bread
Have a taste of this delight
Come on all, let’s have a bite!
Limes are green with a harden rind
Great to eat or drink
Slice them thin and then enjoy
The juicy slimy treat!
Grapes on the grapevine
Ready to dine, giving you wine on the table
A favorite treat for you to eat
If drinking wine you’re not able!
