Helen's Profile

About

I live in the small town of Rushford nestled in the bluff lands of southeastern Minnesota.
I like dolls and have many in my collection. My collecting have slowed and now I find I need to find new homes for some of my dolls.
I have two wonderful children, a son and daughter and three beautiful grandchildren.

ANTIQUE DOLL
Antique doll, with your strange old clothes,
There is nobody still alive who knows
How much you meant to some little girl
In the now-forgotten past.

Your staring eyes that can never close
Reveal no hint of your joys and woes,
And your soft brown hair will stay in curl

ANTIQUE DOLL
Antique doll, with your strange old clothes,

How much you meant to some little girl
In the now-forgotten past.

Your staring eyes that can never close
Reveal no hint of your joys and woes,
And your soft brown hair will stay in curl
Until the very last.

It must seem strange to have watched so long
The amazing change of the passing throng
And be left behind in the fashion field
As time went marching by.

But you're sweet and quaint just as you are,
And your age makes you worth more, by far,
Than the new and shining modern yield
Of dolls that we can buy.

A hundred years from now, they too
Will look old-fashioned just like you,
And folks will wonder who loved them when
They were crisp and bright and new.

And they'll stand and stare from museum shelves
At the living models of themselves
As the cycle of fashion rolls again,
Perhaps straight back to you.
