Fun on Friday
Winter Weather and the Persimmon
A persimmon I am,
a bright orange fruit
I make a great jam
And look pretty cute.
But some say I am never wrong
When they use me to predict
If winter will be short or long
And how much snow it will inflict.
They cut me open to see my seed,
And look upon its shape.
For from it they think they read
If they’ll need a heavy winter cape.
If I am in a knife-like shape
Then you had best be ready
And cover your windows with a drape
Winter winds-harsh and steady.
If I am shaped like a spoon,
Then be prepared to shovel
Winter will be long and soon
With deep snow outside your hovel.
If you see a fork in me,
Be happy and rejoice
Snow like powder is what you’ll see
Light and fluffy, not too moist.
Can I see the winter that’s ahead?
Do my seeds have ESP?
All I can know is what I’ve said-
I’m a persimmon, cute as can be.
Have a great day!
