O, Cardboard Box by Mikaela Kuhn

O, Cardboard Box
by Mikaela Kuhn

O, cardboard box, how glorious thou be,
With thy open-up sides all brown and dusty.
O, thou gave me space for storage and decor.
But now, cardboard box, I must sadly say,
That thou is not large enough to hold all my stuff.
I throw thee out the door for that poor recycling truck.


She decided that she wasn't happy with her poem as is. She wanted it to rhyme better. So, we found a rhyming dictionary and she edited her poem more to her liking. Here's the new version:

O, cardboard box, how glorious thou art,

With thy sides all dusty and falling apart.

O thou gave me space for storage and d├ęcor.

But now, cardboard box, thou can help me no more,

For thou art not large enough, oh, tough luck!

I throw thee out the door for that poor recycling truck.
