Sally The Rag Doll - Poem by Jinge Norvall

Soft in limb & bland in face,
Sally the rag doll knew her place..
Doctor or nurse, teacher for a day -
Sally the rag doll knew how to play!
Hair in plaits, or school-girl tails,
Painted eyes & purple nails
Sally was my faithful friend
From playtime's dawn, till childhood 's end...
Sally the rag doll knew her place
Whether in the garden
Or dressed in lace..
Sally the rag doll lived through me -
In adventures imagined
In a childhood free.
