Big ripe Mcintosh apples found lying on the ground Release sweet juiciness when their finders take a bite. Ibises of scarlet stand elsewhere in the world without a sound Gathered underneath a crimson sky awaiting night. Hovering near bushes bursting ever rosily Twin monarchs flutter; cardinals sit on a red-flamed tree. Barns decorate the countryside always painted so Easily to view in their typical bright red hue. A patch of strawberries grows in summer row by row by row. Utter deliciousness resides in raspberries grown there too. Tempting are the garden's tomatoes, more treats colored red! Inside an orchard, carrying a pail which holds small fruit From a cherry tree, treads a freckled lad, hair like fire on his head. Underneath a canopy of leaves, robin redbreast sings a tribute, Lifting notes mellifluously in praise of nature’s grace. Robust as chili peppers' flavor; radiant as a ruby gem, Everywhere we see the passion in this color we embrace. Delightful and dynamic too is this color most worthy of a poem! For James Edward Lee Sr. Acrostically I Stand Tall Poetry Contest

I can see the work that went into this, but it doesn't feel "worked." Nice job, Andrea.
