Weekly poetry thread a day late Can't Post

With Thanksgiving I got completely off schedule. So this week I'll just post a short Grook by Piet Hein. I have dozens of these memorized.

A bit beyond perception's reach
Sometimes I think I see
That life is two locked boxes, each
Containing the other's key.
--Piet Hein

"For DORA BAGGINS in memory of a LONG correspondence, with love from Bilbo; on a large wastebasket. Dora was Drogo's sister, and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she was ninety-nine, and had written reams of good advice for more than half a century."
