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