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!

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
