                     The Coalport Doll


    The little porcelain doll, sat on the mantle

    piece in the living room hall.

    Her dress so striped and blue,

    Holding a small yellow champagne glass

    was all she could do .

    A slight smile on her face full of Grace,

    As her silky blonde hair rested on her

    shoulders.

    The glossy texture of her skin tone ,

    Oh! what a beautiful chin bone!!

    Shined as the sun dawned upon her.

    A baby peach rose poked in her big broad 

    brimmed hat , made her look elegant .

    As a mini blue bow wrapped around her 

    waist , made her look benevolent.

    I looked in her deep, cobalt - blue eyes .

    I was wonderous wise,they could tell it all.

    The Coal Port doll was dressed for the

    Royal Derby Race , I hope she can keep 

    upto the pace...........

Seeing my mother's priced porcelain collection everyday . I thought I wanted to do justice to them by writing a poem about one of them . I am truly proud to inherit them one day !!!!

You are a pro at this. Better than I was at writing at your age. :)
