Poem that cheered me up.

The Orange

At lunchtime I bought a huge Orange

The size of it made us laugh

I peeled it and shared it with Robert and Dave -

They got quarters and I got 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. Its 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.


  1. Anne, it's cheered me up, too! Thank you.

  2. The simple things in life are often the best.

  3. Hi, Anne. You asked me about an email address. Here's my hotmail one:
    If you write to me on that one, I'll reply and let you have the other one which I look at the most. It would be nice to be in touch that way. Buon weekend.

  4. Dont know how but i missed this one.....I love poems and sayings remember all the little books you have sent me , remember Dare to belive.. :-)

  5. Oh Anne - this is a smashing poem. Not least because my two adult sons are called Robert and Dave - sweet memories of their childhood. I found you via Sicily Scene - I'll be back!

  6. Here is one for you Anne, to feel like this must be heaven.....
    Husband, lover friend.
    when clouds hang low and skies are grey,you are the sunshine in my day.
    i feel the warmth of your embrace your every touch makes my heart race.
    each year we share gets better still your voice your smile, give me a thrill.
    When times are hard we'll pull together your hand in mine through stormy weather.
    We know life will not be all bliss but tears can vanish with a kiss.
    Oh dearest husband lover friend my heart is yours till journeys end.
