Pears

PearsI was tweeting with my friends, USA Pears…handle? @USApears. Follow them!  I told them I wrote and illustrated a pear poem and they asked me to share it with them. It is from my second book: MORE Poems on Fruits & Odes to Veggies.  (This book has yet to be published…in fact, I am still seeking a publisher…any publishers out there interested in taking a peek?)  First, check out the original Poems & Odes book…Poems on Fruits & Odes to Veggies.

Without further ado…

Pears 

Five pairs of pears sat in a bowl

‘til there were eight left of the whole

 

Four pairs of pears sat in a bowl

‘til there were six left of the whole

 

Three pairs of pears sat in a bowl

‘til there were four left of the whole

 

Two pairs of pears sat in a bowl

‘til there were two left of the whole

 

One pair of pears sat in a bowl

‘til there were none left of the whole

 

A pair of friends, for five days straight

Each ate a pear, and they were great
