The Music Box

THE MUSIC BOX

Stranded on the embankment of a river

was an abandoned music box.

For decades the tune went unheard

until an innocent girl discovered

the mysterious amusement.

The child’s spidery fingers

lifted the lid and let

the notes spring free.

As the last chord escaped,

the girl tossed the contraption

into the river so that her ears

               were the last to hear the tinkling.
