After much search I find
the lost key in the lock
where I left it.

What rhymes with orange?

Challenged by a fellow poet, here's a rhyming stanza Dean came up with off the cuff:

Maid, sculpt your hair with orange gel
For coif where lover or angel
May, safe from cooties or mange dwell
And loving fingers – O!—range well.

by Dean Blehert

(Not exactly a rhyme with just "orange", but pretty nice, nonetheless!)

One Day

One day in the middle of my life
I realized that I knew nothing
about living with a woman,
having friends, making money,
owning a house, and caring for carpets,
plants, animals, and cars.

What a relief to recognize
all my vague fears as precise

What a joy to be rewarded
for 37 years of knowing it all
with the chance to learn something.
