What’s in the box?

A secret!

Imagination makes

A pirate ship

A turtle’s house

A place for picnic lunch.

A child knows

How to look for things

As simple as a box

And sees the microcosm

In each corner, side, and top.

It can become

Most anything

Perspective is the key

Perhaps a railroad car, or hill,

It goes on endlessly.

I took a gift once

To a boy

He tossed it hastily

It wasn’t what

Was in the box,

It was the box, you see.
