PEARS
[ Also see Fruits Trees ]

"Now, Sire," quod she, "for aught that may bityde,
  I moste haue of the peres that I see,
    Or I moote dye, so soore longeth me
      To eten of the smalle peres grene."
      - Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales
         (l. 14,669), The Merchant's Tale

The great white pear-tree dropped with dew from leaves
  And blossom, under heavens of happy blue.
      - Jean Ingelow, Songs with Preludes--Wedlock

A pear-tree planted nigh:
  'Twas charg'd with fruit that made a goodly show,
    And hung with dangling pears was every bough.
      - Alexander Pope, January and May (l. 602)
