I once wrote a poem about rhyming words with oranges as a metaphor for loving freely (OK, so who hasn’t?). I was young when I wrote it and kind of proud of it. It went like this: love need not be bound in rhyme nor meter for that matter but rather should leap liquid from the pages puddle-aping can I call this woodland scene iambic say that love makes languages morse code ‘I could not tell you how I felt too many words I had to leave love out to save the scheme preserve the unity’ she sighs and says I will not love a man who cannot end his lines with oranges. The thing being that it was a love poem, and “says” and “oranges” did rhyme, which was my way of saying: Honey, look I think I beat this thing and it’ll be better from now on. Which is why they don't write Hallmark cards with footnotes, I later learned. It does illustrate the trouble of rhyming anything with oranges or, in this case, Orangefield (which apparently only rhymes with itself, though I would think you’d have the entire “eel” family to play with here). Nice song though. Van Morrison went to the Orangefield School For Boys in Belfast, lest you think this orange is out of the blue.
