Toys and the like

Dolls and such as these shimmer through joys and laments for a thousand real and imagined childhoods

The teddybears picnic in the woods – toys stuffed in the houses around our neighbourhoods

And one day aware suddenly of fellow children who had no toys and only imaginings of such happy-making objects

And again later of little ones with no food and only tears for salt
