Poem

Standard

The Magic Box

I will put in my box

Four lovely summers
A mouth watering chocolate land
Another world which is amazing

I will put in my box

A second sun which doesn't give out light
An ocean which has five wishes for every person
Water that dances when someone goes in it

I will put in my box

The sweet sound of the swooshing sea
A snowman that can survive in Summer
Someplace where the rain never falls

I will put in my box

A place where the rain always stays
A non polluted world
A never ending rain forest

My box is fashioned from gold and has a secret under the lid and under the inside floor

I shall surf in my box

On the lovely ocean and see it dance in front of me and catch some fish for dinner.

I found this poem in the attic while sorting out.

It was written by my son when he was 9 years old.

  1. This is such a lovely poem, Ute.
    We all need our magic boxes, once in a while.
    Thank you to you and your son for sharing this one. 💗

    And now I know where the idea for Olaf’s personal flurry came from!

    • I liked it very much too and finding it again brought back memories. We do need som magic yes, so we need to ook out for it daily! ♥ Love that Olaf video. ♥

  2. That’s a purrfect box, can you put me in there too. I can help with the fishies😸Pawkisses for a Happy Mother’s Day dear furriend. We’re sure she’s watching you✨🐾😽💞

    • I believe my mum is watching, and we played today her favourite card game. She would have loved to join. Please do join the box, interesting things in it! 🙂

  3. We love the charm of the naivety of this poem. Your son has a feeling for language, dear Ute.
