Assuming you have a yum plugin installed, a block as simple as:

package { 'mysql-server' : ensure => '5.5' , }

should work. You may have to add a repository that includes the package you need through the yum plugin. If there is a specifically named version of the package (for example mysql55w in the webtatic repo) then you just need to ensure it is installed:

package { 'mysql55w' : ensure => 'present' , }
