Strawberry


This was written as a personification poem for English. It had to be a fruit or vegetable and I chose a strawberry.

My reddish skin is
Red as an apple.
I am covered with

Small green freckles that
Are everywhere.
I am very sweet.

My green hair sticks out
A little and is
Picked off by others.

I grow to be a
Few years old. I last
Longer than most. I am

Surrounded by friends.
We must stay close so
That we do not freeze.

I love when I am
Given a bath for it
Feels so refreshing.

My dirt is washed from
Me. I love to spin
‘round in my water.

I am not garnished.
My complexure is
So sensitive. I

Have soft skin. If dropped,
I am spoiled for my
Bruises cover me.

White flowers greet me
Early in my life; they
Are so beautiful.

My small figure makes
Up in abundant
Popularity.

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.
