Portrait Of A Painter

I cannot say how much I admire
How much you attempt
And how much you accomplish
As if you had plenty of time to spare.

If I had the time myself,
I think I’d rush by
Just to fall in love with you
For a moment or an eon,
But as it is, I barely have time
To say that I’d like to!

(How fine it’d be, though, to be in love
With a lady of such finesse,
Who paints so much more
Than her own eyes and lips!)

  1. ahhh, lovely, sweet -- for a squeaking rat-bastard, I find it truly charming!

  2. Higher words of praise can hardly be found. Thanx!


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
