Watermelon

Title

Watermelon

Description

I have seen the stars at sunset
Scattered o'er the western sky,
Peeping through the crimson cloud bars,
Beautiful unto the eye,
And I've seen the watermelon,
Crimson, seed decked, coated green,
Filled with cool, delicious sweetness,
Fit to slake the thirst of queen;
And I love the crimson sunset,
Fairest sight that eye can dwell on,
But above all sights of summer,
Love I juicy watermelon.
