    Young Mabeline sat and imagined her castle -
    Two turrets and towering walls,
    As mounds of green grass and blue sparkling water
    Trailed down from the thundering falls.

    “What are you building” her mother soon asked
    Of young Mabeline crouched on the floor.
    “I’m building a moat and inside of it, mother,
    I’m building my castle’s great door.”

    “I’m building a home for my teddy, dear mother,
    And the dolly with only one arm
    For the elephant there on the shelf all alone
    And my piggy who hasn’t a farm.”

    “I’m building a palace of small plastic bricks
    All in yellow and red and bright blue
    I’m building a dream, mother dearest of mine,
    For them and for me and for you.”
