A different fruit (a total of twelve) is buried in every one of the following lines.

Example: A word is considered 'buried' when it can be read like P A R I S in the sentence "Grand-pa(pa ris)es at seven every morning."
Can you detect them?

Ah! If I get my good ship home
I'll find a tempting spot,
Where mayhap pleasant flowers will bloom,
And there I'll shape a charming cot.

Where bees sip nectar in each flower,
And Philomel on hawthorn rests,
I'll shape a rustic, sun-kissed bower -
A bower meet for angel guests.

Then she who lives and loves with me,
Sing our days of calm repose,
Sole monarch of the flowers will be -
For Myra is indeed a rose.


Ah! I(f I g)et my good ship home
I'll fin(d a te)mpting spot,
Where mayh(ap ple)asant flowers will bloom,
And there I'll sha(pe a ch)arming cot.

Where bees sip (nectar in e)ach flower,
And Philo(mel on) hawthorn rests,
I'll sha(pe a r)ustic, sun-kissed bower -
A bower meet f(or ange)l guests.

Then she wh(o live)s and loves with me,
Sin(g our d)ays of calm repose,
So(le mon)arch of the flowers will be -
For My(ra is in)deed a rose.
