Woodbox Fox

If you want to be sly,
They say mimic a fox.
When sly’s what I try,
I just hide in a box.
Our house has a cupboard
That holds all our wood,
But mostly I used it
For hide-n-seek good.
No one would find me,
For days if I tried.
The hounds ran amuck,
While I stayed inside.
I guess that the box
Resembles a den.
So I guess I was acting
Just like a fox then.
The box is still there,
Filled with cobwebs and dust,
Far from the box now
Creep like a fox, I must.

    Grandma Gibbons and I really like this one…we read it together sitting in front of that fire box -your secret hiding place. Your poems always put a smile on my face 🙂

    Your poems transport me to years gone by. Am happy to be able to share in your memories! Love you Jess!

    When you want to be sly,
    This is what you’ll try,
    Just think of me,
    And all that I be,
    Then do the exact opposite.
