I will put in the box A snowflake falling from the deep sky, A petal from a red rose, And the first breeze that ever blew. I will put in the box An autumn leaf dancing to the ground, A gleaming ring worn by a princess, And the first flame from a dragon. I will [...]

Greek spear

The Magic Box by Adam Butcher

I will put in the box The flow of the North Sea on an Autumn’s night , Bombs from the inside of a German bomber, The tip of an ancient Greek spear. I will put in the box A hero from Lord of the Rings A scythe of the deathly hand of the Grim Reaper, [...]

Peaches remind me of holidays, a hot summer day eating peaches, or peach ice cream on the beach.
