The Secrets Dolls Keep

a poem by Stefanie Vega

The watchful small doll
will say nothing at all,
keeping secrets
an age-old tradition.

Keeping all
to herself
as she stands on the shelf,
she's content with her present condition.

if you suspect your doll creeping
while everyone's sleeping,
there's a way
you can prove your suspicion.

Make a mark on her shelf.
Keep this mark to yourself,
and discover her secret ambition.

If she's moved
when you rise,
you'd be clever and wise
to enlist her
in your secret mission.

And so, it be told;
it's the secrets they hold
that make dollies
a welcome addition.
