L Hutchison (July 2020)
Marmalade sunrise full of ancient promise;
Marmalade sky over wintry brown field.
Marmalade oranges strain the gnarled branches;
Marmalade baskets with their golden yield.
Oranges patiently squeezed, rinded and chopped;
Marmalade jars waiting for more.
Marmalade stirred in vast copper pots;
Marmalade smudges wiped off the floor.
Marmalade moon above the rooftops
Marmalade fire gives warmth and delight.
Marmalade cat curled with marmalade dog;
Marmalade candle beckons a very good night.
