Portrait #2


                                          I saw Your portrait on a wall
                                                And gazed at it awhile
                                          Is there Da Vinci in Your eyes
                                                 A Mona Lisa smile?
                                        Could Monet at his best impress
                                              Or Rembrandt ever render
                                       The contrast that's engraved within
                                            A face both strong and tender?
                                    Could Van Goghs wild and vibrant hues
                                               Or Degas graceful lines
                                        Add shape and form and colour to
                                                The face of 'The Divine?
                                            As I was looking at Your face
                                                   It then occured to me
                                            No painting captures who You are
                                                        In any gallery.
