In most all places where people live
Various kinds of fruits grow wild.
Which early man gathered from near by plants,
Long before Noah was a child.

The remains of apples, pears, plumbs and cherries
Have been found in Stone Age caves.
Grapes, olives, dates and figs,
Were placed within tombs and graves.

Fruit was consumed fresh or preserved,
Dried by the rays of the sun.
To be eaten during the long cold winter months,
Till the snow would melt and the rivers run.

Columbus took seeds along on his second voyage,
To plant and cultivate wherever they would grow.
To be plucked and devoured by hungry humans,
Instead of obtaining them from the forest of foe.

Today’s fruits are native of many different lands
Though most will grow where the climate is right.
They are picked and shipped by plain, train, truck or boat,
To be enjoyed with delight.

Cute entry. I wonder if a little work on the measure would help.
