Peaches, Pineapples, and Pears

ABba abAB abbaA
A Rondel
For LMB's contest

*Peaches, Pineapples, and Pears*


Peaches, pineapples and pears
chilled, topped over my angel food.
This helps to sweeten my sour mood,
this, my secret love affair.

I cut them into little squares
drain, contain, and later drink the juice.
Peaches, pineapples, and pears
chilled, topped over my angel food.

No other dessert can even compare
to this delicacy for me, not you.
I must satisfy my sweet tooth,
there won't be enough to share!!!
Peaches, pineapples, and pears...

    I know that you love juicy fruits ...especially the juice....So this poem is wonderfully describing how much you love juicy fruits. Especially the ripe ones. You are a wonderful poet and this one goes to my fav...Scarlett

    YOu sure are a healthy eater, Jared, even with desserts. Now Angelfood I love! It's one of the lowest caloric desserts you can find. I like to buy angel food made with splenda. But I still gotta have the frosting on it. Pineapple is a great fruit. Too bad I don't like many others, except for cherries berries and melons. Dried fruits like figs are nice! I think this was a very nice poem. It's ok, though, you don't have to share it with me. I'm across the way with cheesecake and icereams. hahaha

    "A' with alliteration gives a fine tone and rhythm to the Rondel. Good luck in the contest
