Cheddar and Mozzarella
By Brett Larkin, 6th grade
2014 Merit Award

Cheddar is yellow like a sunflower,
Mozzarella is like spring every hour,
Cheddar is like the sun shining so bright,
Mozzarella is like snow a winter delight.

Cheddar is like a bee buzzing all around,
Mozzarella is like a bird flying through town,
Cheddar is as yellow as the sun,
Mozzarella is as white as the moon,

Cheddar is like a tree with a gleaming glow,
Mozzarella is like a tree bulging with snow,
Cheddar is a planet big and out there,
Mozzarella is a planet small and out where?
My mind thinks mozzarella
But my taste buds go with cheddar.
