I found a little box
I brought it to my home
I took it to my room
I opened the little box
I saw her there, in the corner of the box
I lifted her out on my finger
I saw that she had been crying
I wanted to ask her why
I was surprised to know that she was sad
I turned in circles to dry her tears
I then saw a smile evolve as we twirled about
I was happy to see that she had wings
I saw her begin to move them, first slow...then faster
I delighted in their fluttering and she rose from my finger
I saw her smile widen and my room became warmer
I saw her wave to me as she turned...and flew out my window
I started to feel sad
I felt I had lost a friend
I started to cry
I looked at the box, and it seemed bigger now
I climbed into the box and laid in the corner
I let the box close slowly over me
I hope someone will one day find me

...I hope it won't take very long  


...just bein' Bluesy

Ah, not to worry, we are nosey creatures and I doubt your box will go undisturbed for long.

It's not too uncomfortable, Miss Lori...it's just that it's so dark.

...just bein' Bluesy
