Summer mangoes , jungle joys
A perfect food for girls and boys
With cherries and some seedless-grapes
I just ate two, much like the apes
The peels slide off like silken sleeves
And what a gift that one receives
The sweet, delicious, golden juice
The gods must favor, I deduce
Summer mangoes for my lunch
What fruity madness…munch, munch, munch!
Where have you been all of my life
Apparently the season’s rife
With the goodness that you proffer
I, indeed, accept your offer!
For, you are never hard to find
You’re beauty simply blows my mind!
Summer mangoes, yummy treat
Such delectation while I eat
I swear, I could have ten a day
The vendors on the streets
Bless me with these luscious meats
So, take a bite and feel the sun
Rejoice that summer’s just begun!
Summer mangoes, I won’t neglect
The pleasure that you do effect
Would it be a tad dramatic
If I say I feel ecstatic?
You came into my life so late
Why were we not close before?
I must research your native lore
Summer mangos, tasty friends
That help my body sing and cleanse
I dedicate this verse to you
Deservingly, it is your due!
Oh mangos, please accept my art
I praise you with a loving heart
But, don’t be jealous if I try a
Tempting, lush, and fair papaya…
