A poem about the cool, refreshing fruit, the watermelon.
The delicious, tantalizing watermelon
Radiates its amazingly sweet and delectable flavor
In every juicy, savory bite.

This sumptuous fruit,
Perfect for refreshment
During sizzling heat and warm weather,
Is delicately sliced and thoughtfully enjoyed,
Providing wet, wholesome eating
And ubiquitous clean-up
For the fortunate consumers
Of this refreshing summertime love.

These large, elliptical specimens
Enjoy the countless gathering of numerous fans
Who celebrate the fruit’s wholesome juiciness
And welcome refreshment.
The soon-to-be ravaged rinds
House the ripe and colorful sweetness
Of this tropical paradise treat
For which we all yearn
During the fruit’s timely and glorious season.
