“Dolly” was how she was called
being chubby, fair and tall
while she was in her kindergarten.
The nuns used to carry her
toss her and pamper her
whenever they caught sight of her.
She was a doll not dumb
very active though plump
the cynosure of all eyes.
She went to the elementary
where again she was primary
now a little slim than before.
Off she reached the middle
her quality did not dwindle
became slim and slender.
Got she into the High School
became the leader but remained cool
stylish and elegant she looked.
Into the portals of the university
she was a student of great diversity
an orator, a rank holder and a gold medalist.
The dolly is a granny now
remains straight but has turned slow
age has withered her to an extent
yet she charms all with her presence.
