Poem of the Day

1 Comment



There’s a box

It just arrived

Especially for me

No one saw it arrive.



I wish I knew what was inside

It says ‘Only open if you dare’

I wonder what it could be?

It’s a complete mystery.


The outside gives no clues

The danger lies within

I run my fingers lightly across the top

It’s too late now


I signed for it at the door

It might send me flying into space

I can’t bear it anymore

I carefully untie the bow.


My eyes dare to peek inside

I smile with delight

For it’s something money can’t buy

A key to another world.


Dare I go inside…
