Boxes, boxes all around
fill the room
like candy in child's pillow case on Halloween.
I ask my mom where we are going
she says I get to see today.
It's a very secluded house and it's near the
beach. It has a big fire place and
a nice room for me.
Except it's very cold
in this secluded house, with a big fireplace,
on this hidden lane,
near a wavy beach,
on a tiny island,
in a big state,
on a huge continent,
in a gigantic world,
in a humongous galaxy,
in an infinite universe.—Elliott Corry (11 years)
