THE BOX

When one gives a gift to a child there’s often a confusing paradox...

as the gift is quickly set aside while the child plays in the box.

 

For children see with their imagination all the journeys to be amassed

In a box that holds not only a present...but trips to the future...and the past

 

Children know a box can be anything...according to their mood...

A mansion high upon a hill...a fortress of solitude.

 

A box can be a spaceship...on a mission to the moon

or a stagecoach drawn by horses....arriving at high noon.

 

A box can be a cave from a time when dinosaurs roamed the land.

or a castle protected from dragons by knights both brave and grand.

 

A box can be a schooner battling monsters out at sea...

Anything a child envisions...is what a box can be.

 

So the next time you give a gift to a child...savor the paradox…

knowing they will find joy in the gift you’re giving…

as well as magic in the box.
