Fruits and others (Children's Poem)


Bell Apple / Bells
A string of small pink bells
Look for the wind to make the sound of ding dong
But I actually like peaceful quiet
I don’t need the wind to ding dong

Grapes / Marbles
A group of playful marbles
Like the noise of pushing back and forth
But we have always stay near each other
Keeping silently softly together

Watermelon / Ball
A big mischievous ball
Looks forward to being bounced
But I just like to stay cool
I don’t want to be bounced and like to be patted instead

Star fruit / Stars
A series of stars are always showing off
Hanging high in the sky
But I only want to feel good
I don’t want to show off in the sky

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
