The Box Upon The Beach

Updated on January 27, 2010

The Box Upon Beach

As I was walking down the beach

I saw something in the sand

It was a shiny box of gold

Oh my! That box was grand!

The box was glowing in the sun

And I wondered what to do

This box would make a lovely gift

So I'd pass it on to you

I handed you this box of gold

You shook your head, No! No!

"I am not worthy of this gift."

You told me, "Please, just go!"

I left your house and wandered round

First one street than the other

I knew what could do with this!

I'd give it to my mother

Mom lives so very far away

But I could get there in nothing flat

When I went to get aboard the plane

They said, "You can't get on with that!"

I can't get on an airplane

So I'd have to take a bus

The lady in the next seat

Started making such a fuss!

The driver told me to get off

And "Lady - You keep quiet!"

"YOU - Get that gold box off my bus

Before it starts a riot!"

The box was causing problems

So I put the gold box in a sack

Now what was I suppose to do?

I'd just go and put it back

I took a long walk to the beach

To where the box was found

I'd like to give the box to someone

But no one was around

I was going to set the gold box down

As it shined before my eyes

This box has caused a whole days grief

I got mad as I realized

I'd traveled back from where I'd come

As I watched the gold box glow

I took that box and pitched it

I threw as hard as I could throw!

I threw that gold box in the ocean

And I saw it float away

It got smaller - smaller - smaller

And then it caught a wave

That gold box road upon the wave

And came to rest right on the shore

The box was shining in the sun

So here I go once more

I found a gold box on the beach .....

      I loved this poem Money lady...isn't it sad that things that we use to think as norm or use to be good are now always questioned because of fear? Thanks for the hub...I would have taken the box if offered. :)
