The Magic School Bus 

A gift of books came in the mail 

not for me 

but for my future child. 

The first gift of that sort, 

I’ve ever received. 

So they sit awkwardly here 

for now

without an owner 

just a hope of one. 

But the thing is, 

I think my heart broke a little

last September. 

And while everyone assumes 

it’s only a matter of time, 

I really don’t know

if there will ever be 

someone small and curious

to come and claim these books 

as their own.
