Dear Miss Cutie,
A brilliant shade of orange,
I seek you out in the grocery store.
You are petite, refreshing, and oh-so-sweet.
Sometimes I find you tucked away
in my lunch bag
with a smile on your face,
knowing the happiness you bring.
So easy to peel
for fingers big or small.
Your tiny little wedges
plop right in my mouth.
Your juices whet my whistle.
Thanks for being a perfect snack,
and a healthy treat,
a delight to everyone you meet.
Today’s poem is called an epistolary poem. Epistolary means written as friendly letter. Ode to my mentor text The Last Fifth Grade of Emerson Elementary for a plethora of ideas!
