Robert the Doll

Dolly come and play with me.
Dance and skip and sway.
Pennies for your fantasies—
Pay you back someday.

Little sailor in your suit,
Smiles all around.
You come from lands of sunny fruit
And speak without a sound.

Move from pane to pane to pane
When family isn't near;
Never eye has seen them plain:
Whispers to the dears.

Whose, the padding cross the boards?
How, the chair, it rocks?
Softly move the window cords,
Softer sound the knocks.

Blink and giggle, dash and wiggle,
Tormentor and fastest friend;
Screams at night, frenetic fright;
When will dolly meet his end?
