There’s a ragdoll sits in my chair

Black button eyes and red yarn hair

She’s been with me so many years

Through happy days and lots of tears.

She sits there like a regal queen

Commanding my whole bedroom scene

She is quite old but in good shape

Poor thing, this is her one landscape !

Her eyes came from old button shoes

A pair my mother once had used

When she was just a child like me

And dreaming of her life to be.

If Marcella were only here

To see the joy and happy cheer

Her Annie brings into each room

Chasing away the children’s gloom.

I know that it would make her proud

That her dad’s gift still woos the crowd

Though it’s one hundred years ago

Raggedy Ann still steals the show !

 

 

 

 

 

OUR CHOICE ( 2015 )

I looked for love I searched in vain

I thought that I had missed that train

So long ago I cannot say

I can’t recall upon which day !

There is no reason I can give

Or cite one person to forgive

Why it just happens who can know

For some to stay while others go.

The wheel spins round and round, you see

And stops where it is meant to be

Tis true to note we need control

It is our choice, our aim, our goal !
