The Magic Box
Max Freedman

I will put in the box a strand
of my baby sister's pretty hair,
a colorful fall leaf, a shiny pretty

I will put in the box a
fluffy little kitten, some
fire-red madness, some of the
shiniest emeralds,

I will put in the box a lovely
valentine, a glowing moonlit
star, my wonderfullest dream
of all time,

I will put in the box some
nice peace and quite, a good
lemony snicket book, and my
favorite stuffed animal.

This is sweet and the voice is terrifc! I'd like a place in that box, please.

I really loved this. It has a depth that is inviting.
