The Lover of Fruit

Such fruits have I had.
Seduced by the juice
Of the just ripe pear.
Oh yes, I have been there.

Sometimes I have been glad
At the fruits I have had.
The soft peach
And the perfect pear,
Just out of reach,
Has driven me half-mad.
Oh yes, I have been there.

I know
How the low
Bough, laden with maiden
peach and pear
Calls, And how easily it falls
Into the hand of the lover of peach and pear.
Oh yes, I have been there.

Such fruits have I had.
Seduced by the juice
Of the just ripe pear..
Oh yes, I have been there.
