Bessies Song To Her Doll

Bessies Song To Her Doll :

Matilda Jane, you never look

At any toy or picture-book.

I show you pretty things in vain--

You must be blind, Matilda Jane!

I ask you riddles, tell you tales,

But all our conversation fails.

You never answer me again--

I fear you're dumb, Matilda Jane!

Matilda darling, when I call,

You never seem to hear at all.

I shout with all my might and main--

But you're so deaf, Matilda Jane!

Matilda Jane, you needn't mind,

For, though you're deaf and dumb and blind,

There's some one loves you, it is plain--

And that is me, Matilda Jane!
