The Magic Box
By Matariki






I will put in my box,

A giraffe doing gymnastics,
A light bulb twisting itself,
A crazy cat carrying a coconut, balancing on a wall.

I will put in the box,

A dancing picture,
The year of the zebra and a green sky,
A monkey playing a ukulele.

I will put in my box,

Pink and purple perfect ponies,
Dogs skateboarding in the bathroom sink,
A snowman surfing on the sea.

I will put in the box,

The ruby red coral from the silky red sun,
A fairy blowing fire,
A dragon with a magic wand.

My box is fashioned from diamonds, gold and silver,
With emeralds on the lid and stripes in the corners,
It’s hinges are made from the toe joints of koalas.

I shall fly on a griffin in my box,
Then land in a bear’s home,
The pure smell of nature.
