Old toys

Children’s lives —

their playtimes past —

reveal the larger world,

mimic real people, those

who once ruled the roads.

This doll arrived in 1916

with a five year old.

May kept the doll —

at home till her own death

at age 94 in 2006 –

treasured long after play:

memories gifted —

and received.
