ill set you a homework: find one for orange 🙂
And you know you've got me!However, this guy: http://humanities.exeter.ac.uk/theology/staff/gorringe/ was chaplain at the college just across the road from mine when I was at university, so if I was writing a poem about an orange, I'd probably have him reflecting on its divine beauty, or something.
