A Poem for a Thursday #101

This is such a cheerful poem and we all need something cheerful these days. I hope you enjoy it too. I have featured Wendy Cope's poems before here and here.


At lunchtime I bought a huge orange--

The size of it made us all laugh.

I peeled it and shared it with Robert and Dave--

They got quarters and I had a half.


And that orange, it made me so happy,

As ordinary things often do

Just lately. The shopping. A walk in the park.

This is peace and contentment. It's new.


The rest of the day was quite easy.

I did all the jobs on my list

And enjoyed them and had some time over.

I love you. I'm glad I exist.


The Orange

Wendy Cope
