She's Real to Me

Doctor and the Doll  Norman Rockwell
Bessie's Song to her Doll
by Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson)
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!
