What is missing in this painting?
"Let's draw a house. Each his own."
The children drew and drew:
posts, walls, stair window, door;
cheek on palm, eyelids moving;
garden, swimming pool, patio;
twirling a pencil, added:
trees, mountain, cloud, sun.
"Here!" They showed their own houses.
"There's something missing."
Back to the drawing board, pondered:
birds in the sky and in trees singing.
"Here," they showed again their houses.
"There's still something missing.
Would you like to live in your houses?"
Fingers moved, lips tightened:
more lines, shades, colors, now with flowers.
"Here," they showed once more their houses.
"But there's still one thing missing."
A little girl in a corner drew and drew:
a house nearby, people around.
She showed her house.
The children chorused: Neighbor! ~
