Thanks be to God for the peach

Blessed be God for the creation of the fresh ripe peach!
Oh, such delight and juice and sweetness that is not too sweet,
but just right.
Who could imagine, who could design,
who could produce from the elements of the stars
something so delicate, soft and perfect?
Only the God of mercy and beauty
and a God who obviously loves us so much to give us the peach.
