I'm looking for a poem about a person (or possibly a kid and father, I can't remember) , who lights an orange (or it's peelings) on fire to stay warm. It's older. I'm looking for it for my boyfriend's birthday. He's 25 and said he read it as a kid, so it's fairly old. He also thought it was a Robert Frost poem, but I haven't heard of a Robert Frost poem like that before. Perhaps he got the poets wrong. Sound familiar to anyone?

    Look for the poem " Oranges" by Gary Soto, might be the one you want.
