A Happy Poem on a Stormy Day

Here’s a love poem that I could have written when I adopted my cats in 1997.

“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.
