Three, six, nine
The goose drank wine
The monkey chewed tobacco
On the streetcar line
I remember my little girl singing those words when she jumped rope outside. I would watch her from my spot on the steps, and I wished I could jump too.
But dolls can’t jump.
I watched her as she slept. I smiled as she dreamt and wished I could dream too.
But dolls can’t dream.
I stayed by her side when she was afraid of the monster under her bed and the shadows in the room. I tried to whisper comforting words.
But dolls can’t whisper.
