Writing 201: Poetry, Day eight – Flavor

This was really funny and I enjoyed it @benhuberman , thanks a lot! So here is my sad Elegy:

It is gone.
Only the bitterness is left here.
Oh, come back mango season,
refresh my throat since I don’t like beer.

Oh, don’t let me wait too long.
You were so juicy,  sweet and healthy,
without you I don’t feel strong enough,
with you I felt so good and wealthy.

Oh mango, my source of vitamins
come back and give me the strength,
let me peel your silky skin,
let me smell your beautiful scent.

It is gone.
You were my morning’s joy.
I am sad… the mango season is done.
You were my sugar,  my cake, my gold.

    Oh! I’m craving for mangoes now! 😄

    • 😊 yes I want some as well but we have only the small type now… thanks for reading my lines and blessings!

  6. Haven’t had many mangoes – now I realise what I’m missing! I bet you could sell this to the mango marketing organisation!

    • Oh, thanks I didn’t think about it and it sounds interesting. Thank you for stopping at my lines and I really like your poems as well. Blessings!
