February 16th Audience Participation Poem for Hinges and Hearts Reading at GAHC
If you love the earth’s people, You love their dolls . . . Beaded eyes and thread-sewn rag limbs, Warm and loving . . . Friendship, sharing and lots of fun . . . Many to keep, but a special one To share, and then we’re done. Dolls are not just for children. We hold them in our hearts always From the early days of the Pilgrims We held them in our hearts and arms. With home cut hairdos, Resewn eyes and limbs, They don’t hold it against us, But still respond to hugs and kisses! Soldier dolls are dolls’ for boys and generals, Mechanical, stackable, and retractable. Toy bombs and guns that always “misses,” So the next time the soldier dolls can gain be attackable. When you collect one cherished doll of any type, You honor those who made them, acquired them, loved them.
