The Little Doll

By Charles Kingsley

I ONCE had a sweet little doll, dears,
The prettiest doll in the world;
Her cheeks were so red and so white, dears,
And her hair was so charmingly curled.

But I lost my poor little doll, dears,
As I played in the heath one day;
And I cried for her more than a week, dears;
But I never could find where she lay.

I found my poor little doll, dears,
As I played in the heath one day:
Folks say she is terribly changed, dears,
For her paint is all washed away,

And her arm trodden off by the cows, dears,
And her hair not the least bit curled:
Yet for old sakes she is still, dears,
The prettiest doll in the world.

Q 1: Read the poem and guess the meaning of 'charmingly':

Q 2: Why did people say that the doll was terribly changed?
because the doll had a new dress
because the doll was damaged
because it was an all new doll

Q 3: Why does the poet still love the doll?
because no one else had a similar doll
because the doll brought back old memories
because the doll is still beautiful

Q 4: Use a dictionary to find the meaning of 'heath':
waste land
