[Poetry] Music box

Music box

A little box of lacquered wood

Upon her dressing table stood,

Inside it gems and baubles hid

And magic when I upped the lid.

A tiny dancer waits for me

To cast a magic spell with key,

I turn it once, I turn it twice

And music fills the box so nice.

The dancer turns and spins around

Her feet enchanted on the ground,

The music starts to fade away

She'll dance again another day.
