Poems by Orange, NaNoWriMo 2010

Here are some poems Orange wrote during her life of main character in my new novel “Orange Lemonpie of the First-Year Stars” which I wrote during NaNoWriMo this passing month of November. I still have some work on it, yet the frenzy is over.

Chapter VI

You see that carpet on the ground,

Which makes that cheerful sound?

Leaves fall and autumn turns them bright,

Each one – a feast for our sight.

Beneath each tree there is a quilt

Patch-work – it’s patterned beautif’lly.

Let’s go and see – it gives me thrills

To lie and dream in reverie.(*)

(*) – I edited that last line, as Orange herself did not like it. 😉


Chapter XX

Your eyes sweep me off

To the autumn forest

Where I fall asleep.

And your lips

Remind me of the

Autumn leaves

Which fly by

As days of wonder shuffle

Beyond my reason.


I have a vague feeling that the numbering is wrong… However, the novel is to be edited and perhaps translated.
