A fruit of my country

Teach you a fruit of my country
I invite you to share some of
tasty fruit of my country

Let us eat dates, brown and sweet
large and small – hard and soft
easy to plant but long time to get return

difficult to harvest but easy to store
easy to export but difficult to pack
let us enjoy date and have a date in my country
This poem was written as part of a series of workshops facilitated by English PEN at JRS UK
