Tube of Magic

Alchemy, Kaleidoscope, Pattern, Ornament


Cardboard tube – brightly painted

But the true magic was inside

Peeping through the little window

Shape shifting moving colours

Seemed to be alive




One of my most fascinating preschool toys was a kaleidoscope.  That little tube gave me hours of enjoyment, and really did seem like magic in my four or five year old mind.
