Summer peach so juicy sweet
How I salivate to eat
Flesh as bright as midday sun
Down my face your nectar runs
I will devour every bit
Gone in seconds down to pit
Year round peaches are in shops
Yet nothing’s quite like summer’s crop
On tree ‘til ripe is the ideal
A peach can upgrade any meal
In salads, sauces and in pie
The best dessert I hope you try
Is peaches lovely as a dream
Raspberry sauce and rich ice cream!
And here’s a thing to you I’ll teach
A nectarine’s a fuzz-less peach!
This fruit when taken as a whole
Has moved beyond the plate and bowl
It’s so beloved and idolized
The very thought of it is prized
You’re wonderful, and thus referred
To as a “peach”, the perfect word!
A fruit more unctuous has not come
That looks more like a cuddly bum!
I think a peach is pretty grand
Like sunshine that fits in your hand!
