The Orange 
by Wendy Cope 

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 my jobs on my list 
And enjoyed them and had some time over. 
I love you. I’m glad I exist.


I can haz orange?

I can haz orange?
