Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-

Who weaves a strange and wondrous web
Of silken threads and silver strings
To catch all sorts of flying things,
Like crumbs of thoughts and bits of smiles
And specks of dried-up tears,
And dust of dreams that catch and cling
For years and years and years...”

Worked my tail off
Cried my eyes out
Walked my feet off
Sang my heat out

That anyone suggested.
The Noees said no to everything
Unless it was proven and tested.

And the Noees all died of fright,
But somehow I think the Thinkforyourselfees
All came out all right.”

With me in the usual way.
But they picked me,

From all the rest,
Which is lots more than most kids can say.”

That's a lie
I didn't do it
No, not I

I didn't do it
Hope to die

I'm not that bad
But if I did...
Would you be mad?”

“You can’t crawl back in the dollhouse

You’ve gotten to
o
big to
get in.
You’ve got to live here
Like the rest of us do.
You’ve got to walk roads
That are winding and new.
But oh, I wish I could
Crawl back with you
Into the dollhouse again.”
