by Ruth Senter There's a beautiful gift inside this package. It's wrapped for protection. Tied for security. Stamped: "Fragile!" "Handle with Care!" It's easy to loosen the strings, To let anyone tear away the wrapping, To give the gift without commitment— Offer it to the highest bidder, Or hand it out as a prize for a game. There's a gift wrapped inside this brown paper. It's for keeps —not to be exchanged. It's a surprise, A happy treat to be opened by the person To whom it's addressed, On the date marked "Forever."
