Orange Marmelade

“Orange”; often harsher than some hues,
And on the tongue, a strange, ungainly sound,
‘Mid softer shades of green and aqua blues,
Melodic, creamy, apple blossoms ‘round.

It e’en adorns that special ‘red’ we found ,
Contrasting splash for otherwise bland scene,
Our senses breathe it in without a sound,
And suddenly our grasses seem more green.

Peaceable kingdom carries well this dream,
From puppy’s perky paws to backyard swings,
And rocks and fawn in brilliant color schemes,
As lakeside dock shows touch of natural bling.

Between the pretty pinks and ruddy reds,
I laud the orange highlights, in their stead.
