The China DOll (poetic version)

by Ladykelshan

Age Group: Adult

The China Doll,
the fateful small
little "person"
to have come and
gone, n' so short
a while.....
a special present
with a tell-tale

this is a story of
a little girl,
and how her life,
began to whirl...
her father brought
home a special
gift, it was a doll,
that went "adrift"!

Nobody knew
the things that
brewed , inside
of this dolls mind...
the doll had been
a "baby" before,
t'wasn't the last
time, she'd hit
the floors!

The little girl, loved
her so, and brought
her everywheres..
but, the doll had other
thoughts, and plans, n'
would constantly

One morning it
vanished, after a good
nights rest,
the child she searched
for it, and there it
lay on her
Her mother , who did
not breathe , was rushed
to the hospital, that very eve'
but, if you looked , a
bit nearer,
there was a smile
on the doll, t'was
more severer'!

The next night,
she was snuggled up
tight, while in the bed,
with her mama,
but, never fear,
look here, look there,
that doll, was out for
Quickly, quietly,
oh most, decidedly,
this doll just wouldn't
stay still,
the very next morning
when the girl woke up
she found her doll ,
by her dad's window
Her dad's health
had taken a turn,
he rushed to the hospital
as well, ...
but, as the little girl sat,
waited where she was at,
she wondered,
why she suddenly felt
such a "chill".

As she sat, and waited to
see her parents, a certain
gleam came to the eyes
of a little silent doll,
that sat in the hall,
looking scarier than she
should seem!
A Nurse, passing by,
had just happened to spy
and see this doll's
gleaming eyes....
she turned to the
girl and said
"my look at her eyes!"
Your doll looks so alive,
I can't hardly believe, !"
and the girl screamed
started to cry.

For the doll had a smile,
that was larger than most,
and for a doll to change smiles
That in in itself , is no joke!
The girl said "Please take her
I want her to leave! I think
she's the reason, that my
parents were seized
with horrible illnesses, and
they had to come here,
please get rid of this
doll, it's her , that I

So, the Nurse took the doll, and
she threw her
towards the sea,
and the girls parents ,
recovered, and
all lived very joyfully.
SHould you ever chance
to see this China Doll,
please, , oh, please,
don't scoop it up,
at all!

Written Saturday May 27th, 2006

I used to get scared when people would tell me versions of this story...some times I would tell it, and make it more scary or more grotesque! But, I always thought that this story was a good scary and grusome one to retell over and over....
This poetic poem is very, very different than the ones that I have heard and told...but, it's still a great story to retell and retell!
