Orange and Black Candles

Orange and black candles are made this way There are forces unbelievable and true Feelings abound created from being gray Truth be known they keep you from feeling blue I feel a calm ease when I’m around them Orange and black candles are made this way There’s no greater feeling than when This candle is brought into the light of day There is a glow that wafts from their stay Orange is like a pumpkin, black is like the night Orange and black candles are made this way The smell from them bring about love tonight They may not create much light in a room The shadows are long, and light is okay They don’t inflict an aura such as doom Orange and black candles are made this way

    Orange and black are the colors of the Philadelphia Flyers. Their fans may like this poem, especially when the team may not play this year because of the lockout.
