Christmas Every Week: Simple Things

After seeing his grandchildren happily playing with a big cardboard box on Christmas morning Arnold Kellett was prompted to write this poem.

See the presents they've received
From Santa s cornucopian bag,
With all the doting mums and grans
Providing him with seasonal swag!
But, look! Their toys they cast aside,
Though all brand-new and orthodox,
And choose instead to romp and play
Within an empty cardboard box.

It's a house, or a boat, or whatever they please -
Imagination is the measure;
What Christmas price we pay to learn
That simple things give greatest pleasure!
