Show Excerpt

'Twas on a frosty Christmas Eve
When Peggy Deutchland woke

From her wooden sleep
On the counter steep
And to her neighbour spoke,

"Get up! get up, dear Sarah Jane!
Now strikes the midnight hour,

When dolls and toys
Taste human joys,
And revel in their power.

[Illustration]

I long to try my limbs a bit,
And you must walk with me;

Our joints are good
Though made of wood,
And I pine for liberty.

[Illustration]

For twelve long months we've lain in here.
But we don't care a fig;

When wide awake
It does not take
Us long to dance a jig.
