    Geez, it seems that no one here is a big fan of May Swenson. I rated this poem at an 8 because it's playful, and has many, many sensory ques so the words she uses almost seem to recreate the sensation of eating thse yummy fruits. ALSO, most of us have taken the time to look at our fruits. We think about which fruits (or veggies) are our favorites and why. We take the time to reason with ourselves why we don't or do like them. Plus, eating a kiwi is fun(!) so she had to rhyme just a bit to make it interesting. (Report) Reply
