Pink Nymphaea in acrylic (22" x 26") AVR 2012
You bring life and joy to a lonely old pond,
bouquet to the happy at heart;
You bring nostalgia to many promenades,
and model to fashion and art.
You are like gems strewn in countless sparkles
in Claude Monet's great masterpiece;
You rise from the murk and bring down the rainbow
and catch the passing morning breeze.
You cover the pond with odd heart-shape foliage
and flowers in glorious spray;
You make an Eden in some forgotten corner
where passersby would wish to stay. ~
