Through the shop window

A pretty doll,

In a pretty dress,

Letting not a breath

With fascinating colours,

Ravished the heart

                          of a little girl:


A talking glance of the little girl

Sweetly smiled

At the eyes of the father;,

But in the father's empty pocket

His hand became

Bitterly sad.
