Blair Gowrie writes

Oh, Orange Tree

Oh, orange tree,
Your bark adorned
With wicked-looking
Three-inch thorns,
Each one of them
Protruding both
From branch and stem,
Perhaps you want
To pierce the hand
Outstretched by
Some unwary man,
That he may not pick
Nor may not eat
Your fruit that is
So very sweet.Image result for orange tree painting
