Happy Citrus Seller


There is no man
In all this land
Happier than the fellow
In the citrus stand.

He’s a citrus seller.
He sells oranges all day.
You may call it work,
But he calls it play.

He’ll sell you tasty fruit
With or without skin.
He’ll cut your orange thick
Or slice your lemon thin.

If you’re a bit hungry,
Come see citrus seller Bruce.
If you find you’re thirsty,
Just ask for orange juice.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
