The Delivery Man

The delivery man came to our door.
I thought it was for me.
Did Grandma send a birthday gift?
Or Uncle Joe, a tree?

The box was big, like crates of grapes,
Or a TV screen.
Was it filled with candy canes?
Or peppermint ice cream?

It had an “A” right on the box.
The only letter I knew.
Gee, I wish that I could read.
I’d have another clue.

Jeff opened the box from right to left,
Or was it left to right?
He said “from”
Books! What a beautiful sight!
