Celebrate the Melon


Juicy and delicious they are
Just made for a summer treat
As they squirt inside your mouth
They’re so wonderful and sweet

Picnics aren’t complete
Until a watermelon is cut
Slices of the scrumptious fruit
Drags you from a daily rut

Party’s have a veggie plate
And nestled right within
Are melons all chunked up
Not to have them is a sin

And also is the cantaloupe
So perfect for a summer fare
Orange as a ripe pumpkin
Smoothing out unwanted cares

So let us celebrate the melon
Whether red or orange or green
Juicy and so sweet
A scrumptious summer dream!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
