Like technicolor, produce gleams,
I have to buy some collard greens.
Fresh-baked goods smell heavenly–
pies of peach and strawberry.
A cheese display from each country,
and ground coffees, bins of tea.
Samples of apple cider are free.
Fudge in maple, chocolate with cherries.
At Delicious Orchards it does seem
like a gourmet’s wildest dream.
