Wow. That was awesome. I wouldn't be surprised to see this one in the winners list. Possibaly a little long, but what a charming poem with a timely message.

Yes I liked this. I too, would cut it down a bit, but loved your descriptions and ending!

I think this is SO clever! You've given them each such perfect-for-the-fruit personalities, and I love the fruit-salad ending! The only thing that I didn't see that I always put in a fruit salad was pineapple. Prickly - sharp tongue - look, you've got me going now too! Well done!

Giving each fruit a personality - that's great. Nice poem that you obviously worked hard to create.

I love this! A unique idea, full of humour, a subtle (yet poignant) message. GREAT JOB!

What a beautiful poem. We can be lovely alone, but when we work together we can really produce abundant fruity goodness. Thanks:)

An absolutely delightful romp in the orchard. I loved the damson in distress line. The ending - fruit salad - was good. Well done. Lost the rhythm on occasion.
