All good things

Toybox – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a traditional toy box filled with teddies, blankets, hot water bottles and a jar of hot chocolate. Yummy!


They had put all their treasures 

In one little box to keep them safe

It was in their mind the best policy

But fate had other plans for that box

It got lost, with all their good things

And they were inconsolable after the loss

Search they would low and high, hither and tither

But no trace of the little box could they find

Many years passed and everyone grew up and old

Toys lost their attraction, except as mementos

The childhood home was to be sold, profits divided

And in the attic they found their lost treasure

Who wanted it now?

No one had the space for it in their new homes

It was given away to a home for the poor

Where it gave joy to many young hearts
