Fine art is in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together.

-John Ruskin

MASTERPIECE

I am painting your portrait
Using the softest of blues
And highlighting you features
With the gentlest of hues

With care as I paint them
I make your eyes a rich green
With a pale green circle about them
That makes them sparkle and gleam

I add pinks and milky whites
To paint your skin soft and true
To keep this portrait perfect
And gorgeous just like you

I'll hang this masterpiece
In the place of priceless art
In the hallowed place of beauty
Tucked deep in my heart.


Written for a love, dedicated to a friend.
