What If Pandora's Box Was Full of Love

Pandora's Box

According to Hesiod, when Prometheus stole fire from heaven, Zeus, the king of the gods, took vengeance by presenting Pandora to Prometheus' brother Epimetheus. Pandora opened a jar left in her care containing sickness, death and many other unspecified evils which were then released into the world, but what if Pandora’s Box or Jar contained nothing but good things. I know hope was there at the bottom, but I feel that often humanity looks for the worst things.

This is my alternative Pandora’s Box, a cornucopia of love and care, using a butterfly Cinquain Format, and I've included Procol Harum's song on inspired by the same source.
