A poem about the exotic tropical fruit.
|The tropical pineapple plant and its fruit,
Native to Southern Brazil and Paraguay,
Boast a unique look, juicy flavor,
And iconic worldwide appeal.
From the endless fields where
This abundant crop is harvested,
To the fresh fruit counters
At our local grocery stores,
This ubiquitous fruit of paradise
Holds a colorful, sweet, and delicious place
In everyone’s fond and hopeful hearts.
Its wholesome, delectable goodness
Signifies the industrious spirit
Of the kind and noteworthy farmers
Who grow this cherished exotic fruit;
Humanity’s ultimate conquest
For endearing love
And treasured respect
Are embodied in its supremely radiant
And tasteful aura.
