The Magic Box


I will put in the box
The memory of a lost friend,
Who left to be a Falcon,
In hope he will be a Mustang again.

I will put in the box
The sweet smell of summer,
The cool touch of the ocean,
The sound of crashing waves.

I will put in the box
The halted breathing from a first kiss,
A smile from graduation,
The skipped heartbeat from a new car.

I will put in the box
A 27th letter and a pink moon,
A cheetah with strips,
And a zebra with spots.

My box is made from purple silver
With floating clouds on the inside.
The bottom is endless.

I will keep memories in my box,
(Bitter-sweet, happy, and bad)
To keep them safe and hidden,
From anyone or anything
That could have the potential
To ruin them.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The 1st stanza referes to a good friend of mine who moved to a different town. The Falcon represents his mascot, the Mustang represts mine.
The 2nd stanza talks about my favorite vacation... going to the Oregon Coast.
The 3rd stanza is emotions people feel as they grow up. Emotions you never really feel again.
The 4th stanza are things that don't exist.
The 5th and 6th stanza descibes what the box is made of, and what it was made for.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron
