Button-Eyed Princess~~~~ - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis
Cherub child do you ever tire?
Will you always shine so bright?
Clapping hands and saucer eyes
You bubble each morning to see
Your ragtag button eyed doll
That you cherish so tenderly
With braided locks of yarn
Four fingers and no shoes
A crooked stitch for a smile
Patches here and there of blue
An azure princess in your eyes
Made especially for you
Such joy dear grandchild you give
My apron becomes a curtain
You're world is the stage for me
Will you sing me that song again
As I pour the imaginary tea
For you and your button eyed friend
