Everything Marmalade: A Poem


Everything Marmalade

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.
