THERE’S NOTHING LIKE A KID—USING HIS OR HER IMAGINATION!!
Give a kid a bucket,
there’s no telling what he’ll do.
Bucket head, valiant helmet, Frankenstein’s twin.
Collector of pine cones, fancy purse.
Keeper of dreams and special things,
mudpie mixer, sandcastle constructor.
Fill it, empty it, and fill it again.
Knock it over and shrill with glee.
Bend the handle to breaking,
come back from the brink.
Much more alluring when empty,
Filled to capacity with nothing at all
and everything all at once.
