treasures by post

long letters or pictographs
written with care and thought
even in choosing the stamp
and placement on the envelope
we’d wait for the next exchange
sometimes with photos, perfumed
little kisses left behind, etchings
a world of wonderful expectation
with the trip to the mailbox daily
Even, “Ralphie had been rushing
to the mailbox every day
in hopes his decoder ring would arrive”
always held precious to latter
be opened with care, kept in a box.
