Take ten tiny fingers and ten or so toes,
a squeal and a giggle, and a small, upturned nose.
Stir all these together with a tear and a pout
(For a prize winning Princess, you can’t leave these out!)
Next mix in pink cheeks, with a pinch of surprise,
a fringe of fine lashes, and two twinkling eyes.
Blend in a bow and a bright crown of curls,
a sweet, impish grin that’s select to small girls.
Bake in the sun on a swing or a slide,
then remove when well done, with a piggy-back ride.
Frost with sweet dreams and then proudly bring her
