A Japanese-Doll Went A-Reading - Poem by Diptesh Augustine Sarkar

A Japanese-doll went a-reading
and a flower followed her
She put the flower back on the bough
and asked a bee to keep her.

A Japanese-doll went a-reading
but the books ran out to play
She set a mouse loose on them
and made them wail and pray.

A Japanese-doll went a-reading
and the sun would block her way
She then called a gypsy cloud
and drenched the sun away.

But how long can it go as such?
How long can she fight?
All would she make her friends
She thought-
and turn their colours bright!
