Poem about a wooden doll and a wax doll
 
Hi everyone

My friend was telling me about a poem her grandmother use to recite to her about a wooden doll and a wax doll and we īve been trying to track it down. Part of it has something about the wax doll īs nose melting off.

The only one I īve been able to find is one īThe Wooden Doll and the Wax Doll ī by Adelaide O īKeefe, sometimes attributed to Ann Taylor, about two girls called Blanchidine and Brunette, and it īs not that one. I know it īs very old and I wondered if anyone one here might know it or also have been told it as a child.

I realise this isn īt the usual request but it would make my friend īs day if I could find it!
