The dolls will come alive tonight
Into the light
We’ll have a fright
The dolls will come alive tonight

Every little girl and boy
Will see their toy
Their wonderous joy
Every little girl and boy

They’ll go parading in the street
With tiny feet
Until they meet
They’ll go parading in the street

The parents will not have a clue
Of what to do
About the zoo
The parents will not have a clue

They’ll dance around the town’s best square
With long loose hair
And fancy wear
They’ll dance around the town’s best square

From beds they’ll throw the garden flowers
Adding powers
With the hours
From beds they’ll throw the garden flowers

And then at last the night will end
The dolls will bend
Dreams will mend
And then at last the night will end

Thank you so much for the input! Do you think you could take a look at some more? For some reason I only get comments on "Dolls" and on none of the others...and "Dolls" isn't my best piece!

"No one who achieves success does so without the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude."

This was very good, but I think the repetition of the first sentences in the stanzas was a little unnecessary until the final section of the poem. I loved the beat and rhyming though, it was excellent. Keep up the good work!
