Poem Commentary

This is a simlpe poem with a lot of heart. IT could be used in a child's book.

A BOX

A box is just a box
Or so it looks that way
Even a box has a special place to be
With in it can hold many treasures
Things to pack away
A wedding box holds a ring
For the bride to be
A box becomes a train
A child's best friend
A make believe car or boat for a boy
The castle a place for the little girls  dolls to be
Delivered by the postman
A Christmas gift for me
A special birthay box
A present for you
It is only made of cardboard
Once was a tree
It houses many things
In it holds many memories
A box has many uses
It moves you and me
Includes emotions sent our way
I am sending you this imaginary box
When you open it , you will see 
I hope it fills you with happiness, love and health
With in this box from me

Oh thank you. People like to recieve these boxes with a magnet on the bottom, then place it on the refrigerater. The thought is always there. I used to put one called Love on my little boys grave. Truely a gift of love.

It reads easy and straightforward but, ya know - -i feel a depth there when I read it; Something very pacifying. If you don't mind a little nit pick, I'd wanna revamp L4 to read ...Within, it can hold many treasures. I get a visual "stutter" the way it sits now. If you load Firefox you can get automatic spell check no matter where you type. I use it religiously. Nice post!

There are all kinds of boxes, big boxes little boxes, cardboard boxes and wooden boxes. There are boxes for shoes and boxes for clothes, Cigar boxes and candy boxes and for whatever goes boxes. There is only one box that’s really worth keeping and that’s the one box that you should be seeking. Have you heard of Big Daddy Cash and his box for thoughts? It’s time that you did, he’s the author of Cashes Thought Box. His thoughts and ideas are in a box for you to enjoy. Thoughts and ideas that are for you to read and employ. Boxes to motivate you and teach you and boxes to cheer. Three hundred and sixty-five, one for each day of the year. Well Betty that's my box now if you don't mind I'll slide down your rain barrle and play in your magic box of words. LOL, BDC

How cute that used to be one of my favorite songs. Slide down my rain barrel. We'll be jolly friends for ever more. LOL

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
