The Box

 

When people speak of a fine mild day

In the middle of winter or of an unexpectedly

Good news day

 

They say it is one ‘out of the box’.

What box is it? I wonder.

It can’t be Pandora’s because nothing good

 

Comes from there. So what box is it?

What repository of munificence does it

Contain — the cure for cancer, the secret

 

Of happiness, a store of endless wealth,

A reunion with our lost loved ones?

and where can it be found?

 

Can one break into it? Does it have

a secret code? And will it be opened

some day for all to share?

  1. “When people speak of a fine mild day

    In the middle of winter or of an unexpectedly

    Good news day” ‘A fine mild day’ is a phrase used in temperate wet latitudes, like here. How can that be in a Med climate? It is out of the box.
